The article is an exploration of library operational adaptations to the changing technologies of information distribution and usage. The librarians present glimpses of the changes occurring in their library operations as they transition to services without print. The cadence of change particularly with respect to e-books continues to accelerate. The librarians summarize some of the technology changes of the last year and explore, through the evidence of their changing library operations, a range of topics including: trends in ebook “acquisition” and usage; developments in open access publishing; changes in consortia; and the role of librarians in instruction and evolving peer-review and publication processes.
