Links to slides, audio and other meeting outputs are included in the agenda below.

Venue: Newberry Library

Chicago, IL 60610
As research library collections shift from print to electronic and from collections consisting of books and journals to other, more heterogeneous materials, it is imperative that libraries reconsider the nature of the enterprise, including technical services and research services. This symposium provided a variety of perspectives, highlighting changes in publication and consumer trends in electronic forms of knowledge consumption. We also looked at exemplar projects focusing on shifting existing service models from the old to the new.
