The Library Colloquium Committee is pleased to co-sponsor this year's GSLIS Windsor Lecture featuring Roy Tennant, User Services Architect at the California Digital Library, University of California.

About the Presentation:

Breakthrough Internet-based businesses like Google and Amazon have both raised user expectations of information services as well as demonstrated new possibilities. What is the appropriate position of an academic library in this new environment? What are we best positioned to do, and what should we leave to others to do? How should academic libraries change to better serve the needs of their university clientele? These and related questions will be explored in a talk in which there are no sacred cows.
