Reading and libraries have gone together since time immemorial – but what happens when reading takes on radically different forms? The nature of reading – what we read, how we read, and the relationship between information and its delivery – is changing radically. New technologies are deconstructing and reconstructing our concept of what it means to read, thus transforming our expectations and engagement with reading. The fluid, dynamic act of scholarly reading today has many consequences for what we do. This session will explore the implications for libraries, especially trends and forms of reading, patron expectations, and service issues.
