Charleston Library Conference 

Jul 11, 2022

This week's podcast contains audio from a webcast titled “Roundtable: Library Discovery and Access in the Post COVID Hybrid World” with a panel including Tony Zanders, CEO, Skilltype; Erin Gallagher, Chair, Acquisitions & Collections Services, University of Florida; Matt Hayes, Managing Director of Lean Library; Talia Richards, Marketing Director, Springshare; and Matthijs van Otegem, Library Director, Erasmus University Rotterdam.

A recent report on the future of the library-patron relationship found that 77% of research discovery begins outside of the library, with patrons largely starting on search engines or Google Scholar. In this conversational panel discussion, librarians from the US and Europe discuss big questions about the role and value of the modern librarian in a digital age and how to meet patrons at their time of need.
