Future of the Research Library: Dan Hazen

When: Monday, March 25, 2013 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Where: McKeldin Library : 6137
Event Type(s): Lecture

Dan Hazen, Associate Librarian of Harvard College for Collection Development, will speak in McKeldin Library as part of a series exploring the changing role of libraries.

Research libraries cannot hope to build local collections that will meet all of the needs of their users. Cooperative and consortial arrangements must fill the gap. And yet, this landscape is not fully explored. Overlapping cooperative commitments, poorly defined assessment plans, uncertain business models, and fundamental questions concerning scope and adaptability all demand attention. This presentation seeks to provoke discussion on these and related topics.
