Martin Garnar, Reference Services Librarian at Regis University and Professor of Library Science at the University of Denver

As library acquisition models continue to shift from purchasing to licensing, there are increasing concerns about preserving our important principles of information access and resource sharing.  Will libraries continue to be at the forefront of cooperation, or will we turn into disconnected silos serving our separate communities?
Join us for an interactive discussion about the challenges we face and what we can do to maintain our historic traditions of collaboration.
