"FLIP THE MODEL (a pre-print)" About new operating models for academic libraries http://t.co/Q2YiGles1B


“Academic libraries are encountering a critical inflection point. In our case it isn’t a single technology that is disrupting our established system, but a barrage of advancements in publishing, pedagogy, and user preferences. The landscape is shifting around us, and the future of scholarship requires us to develop new skills, design new environments, and deliver new service capacities. In short, we need new operating models.” Read the pre-print.

This is the draft version [...] submitted to the editors. The final (authoritative) copy will be out in January 2014 in the Journal of Academic Librarianship. It is a themed issue on innovation, startup thinking, and that sort of thing."
