Users now cast their 'discovery net' beyond conventional notions of a library collection, and the wider digital transition is causing all parties to reassess how they acquire and provide content.  How are libraries, publishers and intermediaries meeting the challenge?  How will these changes contribute to an improved researcher/student experience? 

This one-day UKSG conference, chaired by Ken Chad, will look at how different parties in the scholarly information chain are addressing changing concepts of the collection.  It will help inform approaches and suggest ways forward.
