Print Principles in a Digital World: Intellectual Freedom in the 21st Century Academic Library (ACRL)

Monday, July 1, 2013
10:30 am to 11:30 am, US/Central

The panelists will explore the impact of the continuing digital revolution on academic libraries and their users. What will be the implications for scholars when almost all information is born digital and no paper copies exist – when libraries no longer buy anything physical other than paper towels and soap? Issues will include the implications of licensed access and external storage versus outright purchase for the availability, preservation and reliability of data, and researcher privacy.
