Abstract: The digital evolution has transformed the creation, distribution, and consumption of knowledge. From print to digital, new models of knowledge use, transference, and sharing continue to evolve. The result is a staggering increase in the circulation of knowledge products. How are university students and faculty utilizing technologies to produce, deliver and engage content? What are the emerging trends and models in education in this new context? Libraries play a central role as facilitators of knowledge systems by actively leveraging new tools, technology and modes of delivery. Are these efforts at pace with the expectations of our students? A diverse panel of experts will address these questions and illustrate initiatives developed by universities and libraries in response to this revolution of knowledge.
