In this podcast, C&RL News editor-in-chief David Free talks to David James, Associate Vice Provost for Academic Programs, and Patricia Iannuzzi, Dean of University Libraries, at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas about their experiences at the IMLS grant-funded Value of Academic Libraries Summits in Chicago.
Change across all facets of society—including demographic, technological, and economic change—has the potential to greatly impact higher education and the academic library. As we move further into the 21st century, it is important to pay attention to the trends around us to inform our thinking about where institutions of higher education and their libraries are headed. This site features resources from the Association of College and Research Libraries (a division of the American Library Association) related to the value of academic and research libraries.
