How should we approach the future? Speakers from Ithaka S+R and Stanford's Graduate School of Education will identify broad transformations within and future directions for higher education. Academic librarians will then discuss how these transformations affect the organization and structure of university libraries, liaison roles, collections, and instruction and outreach. The program will conclude by engaging the audience in a discussion of how changes in higher education are playing out at their own institutions.
