Headlights on Dark Roads


Derek will review the recent history of libraries and the challenges now facing them. He will discuss changes in the external environment, in user behaviour and requirements and explores whether libraries will continue to be needed and the knock-on effect this will have for institutional Web sites. He will also consider whether libraries still have – or can find – a unique selling point which adds value to the academic process and gives a personal view of what that might be.
