It’s Not Your Parents’ Library Anymore: Challenges and Opportunities in the New Webs of Complexity
The 21st century holds the promise of a modern Renaissance in which traditional research library collections and services collide with the promises and realities of digital information and knowledge management. The most intriguing challenges and opportunities for research libraries center on the juxtaposition between the traditional library and digital information and knowledge management, with resultant webs of complexity. This paper examines these challenges and opportunities and raises questions of values and principles, missions and strategies, content and copyright, and methods and ethics.

Knowledge Management from the Navaho to the National Security Agency
An exploration of taxonomy, discontinuity, culture, lost knowledge, planning, the semantic Web, and how prenetwork concepts such as libraries and knowledge management fit into a linked and searchable networked environment. How do we capture, re-purpose, and make available what is important in a complicated world – a world in which our databases can tell us both how to manufacture toothpaste and who is likely to buy it, but not what life forms exist on earth, or even what the chances are that your job will exist five years from now?

The Scholarly Work of Digital Libraries
In the past, librarians have assembled and interpreted collections for smaller audiences that, frequently, were limited to one-on-one consultations in a highly specialized environment. Digital technologies, however, make it possible to combine, analyze, interpret and disseminate the content of our collections in ways never before possible. This presentation will compare and contrast two digital library programs and their innovative approaches to scholarship and knowledge creation and dissemination.

W(h)ither Collections?
As libraries become increasingly hybridized, their collections, both traditional and emerging, find themselves under increasing pressure. Whether one considers print passé, or digital “da bomb,” what’s clear is that collections and how they are used are changing rapidly. This paper will consider the evolution of library collections from various perspectives: quantitative and qualitative, objective and subjective, positive and negative.

New Opportunities for Research Libraries in Digital Information and Knowledge Management: Challenges for the Mid-Sized Research Library.
Libraries are faced with great opportunities to take responsibility for digital information and knowledge management, both on their campuses and across disciplines. These opportunities come, however, with significant challenges. The challenges are less technical than they are financial and social – identifying funding and penetrating the faculty culture to generate enthusiasm and support for sustainable work. This paper will highlight some experiences, successes, and failures.

Is There a Digital Purgatory?
On average, members of the Association of Research Libraries The many opportunities libraries face with the advances of digital technology lead to an understandable assumption that providing a wide range of resources in this form is a natural next step. Only now are some beginning to give serious attention to problems we need to solve before we move forward too quickly and create more problems for those managing information. Dr. Cullen will address these issues from the perspective of a research collection focused on scholarly use.

Librarians for the 21st Century
New forms of scholarship and publishing are radically and rapidly changing the relationships among those who create, store, distribute, and use information. This paper will focus on the changes in library collections and library-information technology organizations, the resulting advancements in scholarly research, and will discuss the attributes, attitudes, and skills needed by the librarians of tomorrow to develop the strong connections between the academic disciplines and research libraries that are essential for library development in the 21st century.

Toward a Topography of Library Collections
The author explores some fundamentals of human perception, pattern recognition, concept formulation, and knowledge storage which suggest new opportunities to understand library collections and develop collecting strategies. Building from these principals, the author demonstrates how advances in digital technology may make it possible to develop a topology of library collections.
