The goal of the 2012 Institute is to explore the ways technology has transformed how users discover, access, and ultimately use information in academic libraries. Changes in library technology mean not only a re-imagining of traditional objects such as a book or a journal, but also involves configuring a library’s physical space and how that space can be best used to serve one’s user community. Finally, librarians are being challenged to find more effective ways to “organize, store and distribute information.
