OCLC Research Senior Program Officer Roy Tennant to Present Keynote at Academic Librarians 2012 Conference

 
Roy will present "The Once and Future Academic Library" from 8-9 a.m. on Wednesday, 13 June 2012 at Syracuse University in New York.

The academic library has for many years been considered the very heart of the university. Today that centrality is challenged by a new set of digital players and the rapidly changing needs of the organizations we serve. What are the challenges and opportunities we face today in remaining the heart of the university? How are some libraries reconfiguring their spaces, their services, and their staff to better serve the needs of the 21st century university? Attend Roy's keynote presentation and find out. The slides from this presentation will be posted on our website following the conference.

The theme of the Academic Librarians 2012 Conference is The Future is Now! Creatively Reaching and Teaching in Academic Libraries.
