What strategic directions are academic library leaders pursuing for their organizations? What benefits and constraints do reporting relationships, funding, and staffing pose for leaders who are trying to execute their vision? What strategic roles do leaders envision for their libraries in key areas such as discovery, information literacy, library publishing, and the development of research collections? In fall 2013, Ithaka S+R surveyed academic library deans and directors across the U.S. on these topics and several others. This presentation will offer a snapshot of the current state of academic libraries and some of the principal opportunities and constraints they face today.
