In a lightning plenary, Jim O’Donnell, University Librarian at Arizona State University, will invite interest in a discussion of the future of the open stack print collection.  Which books should readers encounter in our buildings?  How should they be presented?  Are call numbers the only way to organize them?  Should collections rotate?  He will invite conference-goers to a Lively Lunch on Thursday to share ideas and sign up possible co-conspirators in a continuing discussion.

Jim is the longest-serving open access e-journal publisher in the humanities (Bryn Mawr Classical Review since 1990), is a distinguished scholar, was provost at Georgetown, and now leads the university library in America’s most innovative university.
