Paula Kaufman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


As new digital technologies make the storage of redundant print copies less important, as strained budgets can support fewer subject specialists, and as demands for new services such as data stewardship rise, it is clearer now than ever that libraries' traditional consortia and their places and roles within academic institutions must be rethought and changed expeditiously if academic libraries are to be vitally important. This article, a companion piece to Joan Giescke's article in this issue, explores this concept and offers some possible models for collaboration.
