Episode 100

During the Charleston Conference’s Vendor Showcase Bill caught up with Oya Rieger of ITHAKA S+R and Antje Mays of the University of Kentucky Libraries to discuss their talk “Legacy Missions in Times of Change: Defining and Shaping Collections in the 21st Century.” They talk about what a “legacy mission” is and why legacy is important. They also talk about how collections are changing and what that means for the library’s mission and vision of itself.

Their talk is based upon Oya’s fascinating issue brief for ITHAKA titled, “What’s a Collection Anyway?” Recommended reading for anyone working with collections or thinking hard about the ways libraries are changing.
