About This Virtual Conference

Changes in Higher Education and The Information Marketplace

12:00 - 4:00 | Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Pressures on institutions of higher education in the United States are increasing. Reductions in state funding may severely constrict the work of an extended university system. There is heightened competition for research grants. Donations and endowments must be secured and guarded. At the same time, institutions face a shrinking pool of qualified student applicants. At the same time, technology companies promise efficiencies to be gained from adopting new infrastructure. Open educational resources, online learning and deepened digital engagement are positioned to become the norm. How does all of this impact on the long-term strategic planning for libraries and the providers that serve them? This event will gather key decision-makers from a variety of constituencies to identify and consider long-term implications.
