Lorcan Dempsey's "The Research Library: Scalable Efficiency and Scalable Learning" Presentation Now Available

 

This presentation covers two important trends that are emerging as research libraries are being reconfigured in a network environment. The first is to accelerate the sharing of infrastructure, either through collaborative services or with third party providers. The second is to engage more deeply with the research and learning processes of their campuses. As research and learning processes themselves change, the research library has to respond and this makes being responsive and open to learning very important.

OCLC Vice President, Research, and Chief Strategist Lorcan Dempsey gave this presentation as the invited speaker for the 2012 Kaser Lecture Series at the Indiana University Bloomington School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) on 5 October 2012.
