Deanna Marcum will deliver a keynote address on “Due Diligence and Stewardship in a Time of Change and Uncertainty” at the CRL Collections Forum on Thursday, April 14, at 1:15 pm.

The forum, “@Risk: Stewardship, Due Diligence, and the Future of Print” will explore how, as library economics and scholarly practices change, librarians must make consequential decisions about print serial collections, decisions that will determine what scholarly resources are available to future researchers. Longstanding assumptions about the survival and continued accessibility of print journals, newspapers, and government publications no longer apply, and decisions are being made on the basis of scant data. @Risk will explore the meaning of due diligence in this new environment, and consider new ways to protect and leverage the historic investment in collections made by North American libraries.

The forum is being held on April 14-15 at University of Chicago’s Gleacher Center. For more information see the event website.
