Video: Reconfiguring Library Boundaries with Lorcan Dempsey

This video presentation was used to introduce the two-day workshop, "The Squeezed Middle: Exploring the Future of Library Systems," sponsored by JISC and SCONUL on 19-20 January at the University of Warwick. In the video, Lorcan Dempsey talks about how libraries are changing in the network environment, how they are organizing their services and how they are relating to other services in a Webscale world. He focuses on changes in how libraries are using their resources to create value: space, systems, collections and services/expertise. What should libraries specialize in and what things should they do collaboratively or externalize to other parties? Watch this video to learn how libraries are dealing with these and other important issues now as well as how they may do so in the future
