The presentation focuses on how the role of the academic librarians changes from traditional, to technological & social, to mobile and embedded librarian. To adapt to the changing environment the librarians need to adapt and develop new skills and play new roles. I'm providing some practical examples from my experiences.
Overall the ILI 2011 was a very successful and enlighting conference.
