Futures thinking and collaboration in academic libraries

This 33 page report just came out.  Futures Thinking for Academic Librarians: Higher Education in 2025. (PDF document.)

Prepared by Dr. David J. Staley, Director of the Harvey Goldberg Center for Excellence in Teaching in the History Department of Ohio State University and Kara J. Malenfant, ACRL Scholarly Communications and Government Relations Specialist

Collaboration is mentioned and talked about in several sections.  For example, this was on page 17:

“The democratizing and crowdsourcing of research would be a very good thing for our society and would challenge libraries to play a role in making research available to all and creating tools that aid in collaborative research.”

They also have a podcast concerning the report.  Thanks to Stacey for the note.
