Join MINITEX for the last College of DuPage teleconference for the 2006-2007 season!
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.
James G. Neal, the Vice President for Information Services and University Librarian at Columbia University
Barbara Jones, Wesleyan University
Bob Doyle, Illinois Library Association
