From the Highlights:

Published by ALA Editions, The Network Reshapes the Library shows where libraries have been in the last decade and where they’re heading now, covering such keystone topics as:

  • networked resources;
  • network organization;
  • the research process and libraries' evolving role, featuring the seminal post "In the Flow";
  • resource discovery;
  • library systems and tools such as search indices and OpenURL link resolvers;
  • data and metadata;
  • publishing and communication, including blogs, social media, and scholarly communication;
  • libraries, archives, museums, and galleries as "memory institutions."
