College of DuPage Teleconference

Library Challenges & Opportunities 2007

The Relevance of Libraries in a Digital Age

Friday, May 11, 2007
11:00 AM – 12:30 PM (Central Time)

S30B Wilson Library
West Bank Area, University of Minnesota


Description: A panel of experts will discuss the future relevance of libraries as we know them. The digital age has been with us long enough to make some practical predictions of how traditional roles of libraries will change in information selection, acquisition, synthesis, navigation, dissemination, interpretation and archiving. New responsibilities in information aggregation, publishing education, research and development and policy advocacy will be explored. It promises to be a lively and provocative session.

Moderator
James G. Neal, the Vice President for Information Services and University Librarian at Columbia University

Speakers
Barbara Jones, Wesleyan University
Susan Kent
Bob Doyle, Illinois Library Association
