Coming trends in academic libraries: a view from a UK university

Speaker: Mike Berrington. Location: Sesjon 1 - Cosmos 1.

Mike will consider three key strategic issues currently facing his and most other UK academic libraries:
Development of a vision for digital library services, and their relationship with ‘traditional’ services.
Campaigns and strategies to reduce the cost of digital content; impact of OA, new purchasing models, and working with publishers to improve understanding of budgetary constraints.
Approaches to defining generic value propositions for academic libraries, and developing tools and strategies to better demonstrate value and impact.
