Abstract / Résumé
The talk will focus on the growing trend away from an emphasis in academic libraries on collections
and print-based services to a focus on the Library role in the university learning and research
enterprises including, but not limited to, e-learning, digitization, scholarly publishing, open access,
digital humanities, and management of research data.
