Marshall Breeding-Keynote


Library collections today have become more complex than ever, with proportions of electronic and digital resources increasing relative to print and other physical materials. To manage these complex, multiformat collections, libraries need to consider many different options, both in the technology tools used and in their operational workflows and discovery services able to provide optimal access.  Rather than operate in isolation, libraries increasingly seek to share resource management and discovery among collaborative partners to expand the resources available to patrons and lower operational costs.  Marshall Breeding will give an overview of the current technologies and recent events surrounding these trends.
