NISO Virtual Conference,
Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
As libraries re-evaluate and redesign the services offered to their communities, the ripples of change can be felt across the institution. New job titles and functions appear in university employment postings-clinical information specialist, data scientist, assessment librarian. Space previously given over to stacks is reallocated. Information resources and tools reshape the library's budget. Whether the process is visible or invisible to the library patron, the functions of the library are being re-engineered at a core level. What are the implications for library directors? And for content and platform providers?
