"New Librarianship and the Library as Platform" Ticer 15th International Summer School on Digital Libraries 2012, Tillburg, Netherlands. Abstract: Change in academic libraries is nothing new.
In his most recent lecture presented in Tillburg, Netherlands, R. David Lankes enjoins librarians to be "active in online education, new models of student learning, and helping the faculty adjust to disruptive change." Furthermore, he suggests, "Rather than being the heart of the university centered on a collection, libraries must become hubs that spread new practice throughout the organization."
