Lynn Silipigni Connaway - Changing user patterns for information discovery
The ways people acquire information are changing from national to global, linear to linked and print to digital, which requires librarians to develop new ways of providing services and systems to continue to meet the needs of library users and to attract library non-users. Dr Connaway of OCLC outlines the common themes from findings of 12 studies published in the UK and US between 2005-2010.

There is significant interloan traffic in New Zealand, the bulk of which occurs across Te Puna Interloan, although request and supply rates are down from historical highs. To meet future needs, Te Puna Interloan needs to offer additional services, which may include gateway operations to commercial suppliers so that the interloan world becomes one of many interconnected hubs.
