Wednesday, December 17, 2014
11:00 AM-12:30 PM (EST)

Portal: Libraries and The Academy earlier this year published an article by OCLC researchers Lorcan Dempsey, Constance Malpas and Brian Lavoie, titled Collection Directions: Some Reflections on the Future of Library Collections and Collecting. This groundbreaking article focuses on how 21st century digital networks are impacting information services in academic and research libraries. The article, in particular, reveals how today’s digital networks are forcing libraries to change the ways they shape, design and deliver their collections services on nearly every level.

To learn more about the key themes in this article, join OCLC Research Scientist, Constance Malpas, in a NFAIS Webinar, Wednesday, December 17, 2014. Constance will discuss in detail the evolution of these changes in library collections and how information professionals and providers can keep ahead of the curve in the years ahead.
