Anderson will present a summary and discussion of the ARL report ‘Envisioning Research Library Futures 2030.’ This scenario-based
planning document is designed to help research libraries position themselves
for any of multiple possible contingencies in the near-to-midrange future,
and offers fascinating (and perhaps troubling) insights into some of those
likely scenarios.
