Recording of Nancy K. Roderer's Distinguished Seminar Series Presentation, "From Books to Buildings to Information and Services," Now Available

 
Nancy K. Roderer, Director, Welch Medical Library; Director, Division of Health Services Informatics; and Professor, Schools of Medicine and Public Health at Johns Hopkins University spoke at OCLC on 16 January 2012.

In this presentation, Ms. Roderer tells the story of the changes at the Welch Medical Library over the last ten years, including how the library has been moving aggressively to the provision of digital information, complemented by librarians who also go to the user. While these new services are extensively used, they run counter to the traditional view of the library as books and buildings. Ms. Roderer also discusses the potential implications of these shifts in services for other libraries.

A video recording of this presentation and the discussion that followed is now available, as well as individual files of the audio and slides. In addition, Ms. Roderer's answers to questions submitted via chat that were not addressed during the presentation due to time constraints are also available.
