“The university and its digital libraries. A tale in three parts” was the topic of the 2011 sixth annual OCLC/Frederick G. Kilgour Lecture in Information and Library Science held on Monday, March 21, 2011. The lecture, which is hosted by the School of Information and Library Science (SILS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, featured Dr. Daniel Greenstein, vice provost for Academic Planning, Programs and Coordination at the University of California’s Office of the President, who presented to a standing room only crowd in the Wilson Library.

Greenstein discussed the three concurrent trajectories that are apparent in today’s digital libraries:

  • The management of legacy (largely analog) collections
  • The management of born digital collections and
  • New and emerging practices in the creation, use and dissemination of knowledge
