    Abstract

    The traditional role of the library as the information heart of the university is being questioned as information technology makes information ever more easily accessible. Libraries ignore this fundamental change at their peril. Traditional functions may disappear overnight. To meet this challenge, libraries must review their role, determine their priorities and position themselves to lead their institutions confidently into the next century. This will not be without pain - it requires a dramatic rethinking of the workforce we need and the services we offer.
