    Abstract

    This article is based on a collaborative evaluation of the implementation of a Libraries and Knowledge Centre (LKC) model in three remote Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory. 1 It outlines the context in which LKC services are being implemented, provides a brief description of the LKC model, and discusses some strengths of the model to deliver relevant and sustainable services to Indigenous communities in these changing times. The article highlights some of the more challenging issues that emerge in such a complex knowledge and information context, as well as issues relating to the broader challenges in delivering sustainable services in remote Indigenous communities in the current policy context.
