The Changing Landscape of Library and Information Services: What Presidents, Provosts, and Finance Officers Need to KnowPosted in Research Libraries on September 24th, 2014
The Council on Library and Information Resources has released The Changing Landscape of Library and Information Services: What Presidents, Provosts, and Finance Officers Need to Know.
Here's an excerpt:
CIOs Richard Holmgren, of Allegheny College, and Gene Spencer, of Ursinus College, draw on the workshop discussions to summarize the key challenges and opportunities facing LITS organizations. Developments of the past decade-from the ubiquity of cell phones to the growth of virtual server infrastructure and the maturation of open-source software support models-have created new opportunities for LITS organizations to improve student outcomes, increase revenue, and manage costs. The authors discuss these opportunities and identify the core competencies that LITS organizations will need to support positive institutional change in the decade ahead.
