Our understanding of library collections is changing in a digital, network environment. This presentation focuses on two trends in this context. First, the inside-out library is a trend which sees libraries support the creation, management and discoverability of institutional materials: research data, expertise, preprints, and so on. Second, the facilitated collection is a trend which sees libraries increasingly organize resources around user interests, whether these resources are external, collaborative or locally acquired.
This presentation was given at 'The transformation of academic library collecting: a symposium inspired by Dan C. Hazen'. Harvard Library, 20/21 Oct. 2016
