  4. 4. … about students •  There’ll be more •  They’ll be more diverse •  BYO will be ubiquitous •  Employability will be essential •  We’ll collaborate and negotiate with them •  Their expectations (books, IT, space) will not be met
  5. 5. … about learning •  The curriculum will change •  Flipped model will predominate •  Collaborative endeavour will be significant •  Competence in an information-rich digital environment will be valued
  6. 6. …about research •  It will be cross-disciplinary •  Outputs (and supporting data) will be openly available •  Scholarly publishing model(s) will be diverse
  7. 7. … about the library •  It will be here •  It will warehouse print •  It won’t be (isn’t?) the first place to search •  It will strive to balance access and ownership, discoverability and availability •  It will be the source of information management expertise •  A service - no space required?
