Big Shifts: Libraries, Collections, Networks

Big Shifts: Libraries, Collections, Networks

By Lorcan Dempsey

ALA Midwinter
Philadelphia, PA, USA

Academic libraries increasingly define themselves in terms of student success, research support, and community engagement. We are seeing a major shift from the centrality of the collection, to services and to deeper engagement with changing research, teaching, and learning practices. This presentation frames important changes, identifies patterns in library responses, and discusses how they can use trends to their advantage. It draws on an extensive record of OCLC Research work on the future of libraries, on the shifting boundaries and character of library collections, on research support, on library collaboration, and on the shift to open.
