Ex Libris News: May 2013


Talking about us

Michael Kelley, Editor-in-Chief
"The stable and predictable days of the 20th century, when research libraries could rely on their prized local collections to define their distinct and distinguished place on campus, are long gone...Thirty-two research librarians gathered March 5-6 in Scottsdale, AZ, at a symposium hosted by 
Ex Libris to discuss this challenge, which is as prickly, vast, and shifting as the nearby Sonoran Desert."
