  • 3. Place of the Library in UniversityWhy do Universities have libraries?• It was more economical to have a physical collection than to send researchers or students to the information.• It was useful to locate all the needed information resources for research and learning physically close to the work.• Local collections were assets and contributed competitively to scholarly output Consider the town square in the United States… The world’s libraries. Connected.
  • 4. The network changes everything • The network has reconfigured whole industries • Travel, News, Book Retailing • The network is now the first option for researchers and learners • Impact on the university library • changed the value of physical book collections and library space • changed the relevance of the library assets and services to the University’s outputs We do not yet know what it will mean to reconfigure the library within the University The world’s libraries.
