Host: Diana Oblinger, President and CEO, EDUCAUSE

Speaker: Roger Schonfeld, Director of Research, Ithaka S+R

Description

In fall 2013, Ithaka S+R surveyed academic library deans and directors across the United States about their organizational vision and strategy, resource planning, and decision making. With a response rate of more than 30 percent, the project offers a robust snapshot of the current state of academic libraries and some of the principal opportunities and constraints they face today. (The full report of findings is available from the Ithaka S+R website at http://www.sr.ithaka.org/research-publications/ithaka-sr-us-library-survey-2013.) In this session, Roger Schonfeld will analyze the survey findings in comparison with the Ithaka S+R US Faculty Survey 2012, which yields considerations for library strategy and strategic communications in several key areas. The presentation and discussion will focus on three key topics: discovery of information resources for scholarship, the print-to-electronic transition for book collections, and the changing roles of the library.
