As more and more libraries open their doors all day every day, ILI explores the experiences of two libraries doing just that in Open all hours at next month's conference in London.

In Allerød, north of Copenhagen, the library is always open to its citizens. Library Director Annette Wolgenhagen Godt explores what they have learned so far, how the members of her community use the library during self-service hours, and includes a few funny stories. In response to student feedback, Kimberlin Library at De Montfort University became a 24/7 service a year ago. Hear about the challenges of staffing 24/7, how the transition was managed, and about student use and expectations of the service.
