A panel of librarians presented glimpses of the changes occurring in their library operations as they transition to services centered in e-resources. The four university library environments were Western Oregon University, University of California Merced, Brigham Young University, and Cleveland State University. The panel explored, through the evidence of their changing library operations, a range of topics including trends in e‐book „acquisition‟ and usage; developments in open access publishing; changes in the impact of consortia; and the role of librarians in instruction and evolving peer review and publication processes. The moderator initiated the discussion with a review of a few of the year‟s relevant technology changes. Overall the cadence of change continues and is becoming the familiar norm.
