Examples include, but are not limited to:

·       Information literacy, students, and crises of authority in the contemporary information world

·       The academic librarian as research advisor

·       Educating new librarians for the 21st century academic library mission

·       Challenges related to preservation, accessibility and discoverability of research-valuable information.
