most memorable career achievements: Both: Building a profiling decision-support system at YBP in 1993; creating and growing R2 Consulting; staying married while working together for nearly 20 years!

how/where do I see the industry in five years: Collection development will continue to evolve toward curation of a discovery environment. Instead of deliberately trying to identify titles most relevant to a discipline, broad categories of material that may be relevant will be enhanced for optimum discoverability, immediate delivery (in either print or digital form), and partial or temporary use.
