OCLC Research and Ithaka S+R join forces on new research project

(10 April 2017) OCLC Research and Ithaka S+R have studied and written extensively about the evolution of higher education and the implications of this evolution for the organizational structure and services of libraries. Today, we are announcing a new project, “University Futures; Library Futures”, in which OCLC Research and Ithaka S+R are joining forces to carry out a collaborative project on the future of academic libraries, in the context of changes in the higher education landscape.

In this project, our research question is: what happens when libraries differentiate themselves in terms of services, not collection size; are there multiple models of success?
