Forging Library Partnerships in the Networked Age



Research libraries and librarians have always depended on successful partnerships. Today, creative strategic alliances are critical to strengthening the library's role within the evolving information society and enhancing its ability to provide new services and content.

This conference examines the new opportunities offered by the networked environment to forge innovative partnerships and collaboratve relationships. Among the host of creative thinkers participating in the conference are Paul Duguid, coauthor of The Social Life of Information (Harvard Business School Press, 2000); Carol Tomlinson-Keasey, Chancellor, UC Merced; and Thomas C. Leonard, University Librarian, UC Berkeley. They'll address such questions as:

  • What are the challenges facing libraries now? What will they be 20 years from now?

  • What kinds of partnerships are feasible?

  • With whom should we partner?

  • What do we give? What do we get?

  • How must libraries and librarians change?

Join us for a day designed to help you think "outside the box" about exemplary partnerships and creative strategies.

Sponsors: UC Berkeley Extension; Librarians Association of UC Berkeley; Doreen B. Townsend Center for the Humanities, UC Berkeley; UC Berkeley Library; UC Berkeley School of Information and Management Systems; California Digital Library, UC.
