Epochal changes in the creation and delivery of information and in communication challenge everything we know about teaching, learning, and scholarship. To the academy of tomorrow, the traditional role of library and technology organizations has little value. To continue to be relevant and helpful to our universities' missions, library and technology leaders must understand the changes taking place in the world around them, chart new strategic directions, retool their organizations to meet these new challenges, and lead their staff and communities in defining what teaching, learning, and scholarship are and will become.
The presenters will lead attendees in an interactive review of the fluid landscape of the changing world of libraries, IT, and higher education. We will collectively identify the challenges we face, propose solutions, and chart strategic directions, drawing in particular on our experiences with leading successful merged information service organizations.
