Speakers: Two panelists, Scott Seaman, Dean of Ohio University Libraries and Susan Searing, Interim Associate University Librarian for User Services/Associate Dean of Libraries, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, who are well-versed in the kinds of problems libraries face, will establish a framework for discussion and will create the stage for audience participation in the exploration of problems and solutions.
