Few libraries today develop the 5-10 year strategic plans they once did due to the dynamic environments within academic and research libraries. In this webinar, Jack Ammerman, Associate University Librarian for Digital Initiatives and Open Access at Boston University Libraries, will discuss ways in which shifting user needs and expectations as well as trends in the scholarly and technology worlds have effected planning for library technology at BU. Oren Beit-Arie, Chief Strategy Officer at Ex Libris, will review the ways in which Ex Libris has and is responding to these trends with specific examples from the next generation library services Primo and Alma.
