This year we focus on the question of what the library and publishing may look like in the future. Libraries are experiencing complex changes due to digital forms of publishing, new customer needs and new scientific challenges. We will focus on issues like digitization and scholarly communication. Many new media channels and business models for scientific communication have appeared during the last few years. What impact does this have on how scientists communicate with each other and how they exchange scientific results and insights. And how will this influence the role of publishers and libraries in the future?
