View Online: Dan Cohen’s Keynote Presentation at the RLUK 2018 Conference

Dan Cohen, Vice Provost for Information Collaboration, Dean of the Libraries, and Professor of History at Northeastern University gave a keynote presentation on March 16, 2018 at the RLUK (Research Libraries UK) Conference. The event took place at the British Library in London.

A video recording of the keynote is now available online and is embedded below.

Cohen’s presentation runs approx. 38 minutes and is titled, Putting It All Together.

Here’s the abstract listed in the conference program:

The elements of the future research library are here, including digital platforms and data as well as new services for learning and research. But too often they exist as separate, unconnected entities, rather than presenting a coherent story about a new kind of library. How can we take these new elements and integrate them together into a unified whole that students, researchers, and the public can understand? How can each library leverage what it does best, while also taking advantage of its existence in a network to connect resources and services, synthesizing and projecting a more expansive library than the one we had before?
