*Abstract: The functions of Technical Services have evolved as economics and technology continuously affect libraries. This study investigates how the area of Technical Services in large research university libraries are adapting to support the changing roles of academic libraries. The members of the ALCTS Technical Services Directors of Large Research Libraries Interest Group from the 25 university libraries were contacted for this study, and 19 of 25 invitees completed an hour-long interview. This study identifies various new and emerging TS functions and a number of the factors that greatly impact TS areas both now and in the near future. This research also points out various desirable skills needed by Technical Services personnel.
