The session is an exploration of library operational adaptations to the changing technologies of information distribution and usage. The librarians will present glimpses of the changes occurring in their library operations as they transition to services without print. A panel of librarians will explore, through the evidence of their changing library operations, a range of topics, for example: trends in e-resource ‘acquisition’ and usage; changes in consortia; processing and organizational changes; and developments in open access publishing and library e-publication. After initial presentations, the panel will encourage questions, comments, and discussion with attendees.
