Ursinus Chief information Officer Gene Spencer has co-authored a white paper for the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR). “The Changing Landscape of Library and Information Services: What Presidents, Provosts, and Finance Officers Need to Know,” explores emerging opportunities for colleges and universities, and the key role of library and information technology services (LITS) organizations in realizing that potential.
The report is based on a workshop organized by the CLIR Chief Information Officers (CIOs) group, comprising individuals from liberal arts colleges and small universities that have merged their library and information services organizations. The workshop was based on possible institutional solutions to meet today’s challenges from rapidly evolving digital technologies. The abstract is here. It has been widely distributed on technology news sites.
