The Changing Landscape of Library and Information Services: What Presidents, Provosts, and Finance Officers Need to Know. White Paper. CLIR Publication No. 162
Holmgren, Richard; Spencer, Gene
Council on Library and Information Resources
In December 2013, the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) sponsored a workshop that explored the ways in which library and information technology services (LITS) organizations and academic institutions will need to evolve in the face of new challenges and opportunities. The workshop discussions, reflected in this paper, offer insight into how the transformative potential of an evolving digital infrastructure can help relieve the pressures faced by these institutions. Meeting participants discussed the changing nature of their combined LITS organizations and explored opportunities and challenges presented by the blended organization model. This blend of disciplinary viewpoints and the expanded vision that these professionals must have to lead an integrated LITS division allowed the group to consider libraries and IT in a broader institutional context.
