A World Café, sometimes called a knowledge café, is defined by Wikipedia as ‘a type of business meeting or organisational workshop which aims to provide an open and creative conversation on a topic of mutual interest to surface their collective knowledge, share ideas and insights, and gain a deeper understanding of the subject and the issues involved’. This article describes a world café organised by the library at National University of Ireland Maynooth. Following some brief background informa tion, the process is outlined. We hope the article will give an insight into the process and be of use to those exploring creative ways to engage people around a topic.
