Abstract:
This booklet addresses three important areas. First, expectations for the academic library in today's information age. It seemed critical to examine requirements for the library itself, before exploring what would be needed from its staff. Second, an array of new functions and partnerships for library staff that flow from changes to the university and the library. A group of illustrative scenarios suggest some of the roles library staff will assume in the information age. Third, the implications that these changes within the library will have for all parts of the academy. What will the changes mean for students, faculty, academic administrators, technical staff, and library staff themselves?
