Libraries provide access to and preserve much of the intellectual record, an increasing proportion of which is appearing in electronic form, and accessed through the network. Established library systems are therefore facing foundational changes. In this edited collection, based on a conference of the same name, contributors assess how the library community should react to these developments to ensure that they become important stakeholders in the information systems of the future. With an overall theme of managing the intellectual record, four central groups of papers in the book include transforming the organization, and producing, accessing and preserving the intellectual record.
