dc.description.abstractAcademic libraries are facing a disruptive future. There are new technologies, new pedagogies, new publishing models, and new environments, all converging with teaching and research. This multiplicity of change is bubbling forth and setting up for new directions in the years ahead. Library assessment programs would benefit from adopting Research and Development (R&D) practices in order to anticipate and accommodate new demands. This paper outlines a perspective shift for addressing needs in the emerging landscape of higher education. By embracing a discovery-oriented outlook, activating networked development initiatives, and nurturing a culture of creativity and experimentation, libraries can position themselves for growth opportunities.en_US
