Lorcan Dempsey on the reorganization of library collections in the networked environment
Digital environments are changing the nature of research and learning, and the library collections and services that support research are being reorganized to meet the needs of researchers in these environments. Dempsey describes the expanding role of academic libraries in managing research outputs, as well as their expanding role in facilitating access to local, external and collaborative services. Read and watch to learn more about these two library collection responses to the changing digital environment: The Inside-out Library and the Facilitated Collection.
