No Brief Candle: Reconceiving Research Libraries for the 21st Century
Wednesday, August 13, 2008
In February 2008, CLIR convened 25 leading librarians, publishers, faculty members, and information technology specialists to consider this question. Participants discussed the challenges and opportunities that libraries are likely to face in the next five to ten years, and how changes in scholarly communication will affect the future library. Essays by eight of the participantsâ€”Paul Courant, Andrew Dillon, Rick Luce, Stephen Nichols, DaphnÃ©e Rentfrow, Abby Smith, Kate Wittenberg, and Lee Ziaâ€”were circulated to participants in advance and provided background for the conversation. This report contains these background essays as well as a summary of the meeting.
