Envisioning the Academic Library: A Reflection on Roles, Relevancy and Relationships
Delaney, Geraldine; Bates, Jessica
New Review of Academic Librarianship, v21 n1 p30-51 2015
The focus of this article is to reflect on current and near future issues and trends concerning academic libraries. This includes an overview of the literature on embedded librarianship and a focus on the need for more participatory and collaborative approaches to library services. The core argument is that academic libraries need to continue to adapt their roles and develop stronger relationships across the university in order to maintain and promote their relevancy to all stakeholders. Embedded roles in research and teaching, and an embedded existence through collaboration and outreach will strengthen the academic library's presence within its parent institution.
