The enigma of electronic resources has brought a tidal wave of change to the academy. Research Libraries are at a crossroads that will see their networked infrastructure become the primary means of management, retrieval, and access to all content while print access will take on a decidedly ancillary role that does not fall into this digital rubric. With this new paradigm research libraries must face the changes in personnel management, hiring/recruiting, skills acquisition and development, workflow design, teamwork and team formation, organizational structure, and impacts on organizational culture and internal communications that will be necessary to truly support a primary digital information environment. This panel will consist of three senior library leadership representatives from Florida State University, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and North Carolina State University who will discuss current trends and applied approaches to these issues within their libraries and will offer time for discussion with attendees on this important foundation for electronic resources management.
