dc.descriptionPresentation from the Proquest Middle East Academic Libraries Symposium 2013. Keynote 2, 11.15am - 12.45pm, Oct 23, Lecture Hall Ben_US
dc.description.abstractThis keynote address deals with the changing role of the academic library and how library administrators and suppliers are responding. John McDonald was appointed Associate Vice President and Chief Information Officer for the Claremont University Consortium on October 1, 2011. The Claremont University Consortium is an unusual organization with a mission to serve the needs of seven independent colleges known as "The Claremont Colleges" located in Southern California. CUC is a nationally recognized educational model for academic support, student support and institutional support services to meet the needs of 6,300 students and 2,300 faculty and staff, providing 28 different services, including central library services. Mr. McDonald is responsible for providing leadership in managing the daily operations of Information Technology Services (including library services), Telecommunications Services, and Records Management. CUC was a pioneer in providing centralized services across multiple institutions, and that model is of increasing interest. Mr. McDonald will speak about how the Library of the Claremont Colleges has responded to its evolving mission. Researchers are increasingly turning to the library for assistance and support in preserving and providing access to research data and datasets, dissemination and discovery of their research output and metrics to assess the impact of their research. In the era of predominately electronic collections, academic institutions are also requiring that libraries demonstrate their value. While some of these needs naturally fall in traditional areas of expertise and operations for librarians, others require the development of new skills and leveraging new technologies. Mr. McDonald will discuss how Claremont is responding to these changing needs, both from a technology and staff development point of view. Jane Burke is the vice president for Strategic Initiatives at ProQuest. She joined ProQuest in 2005.
