The worldwide economic implosion has economists questioning the wisdom of “just in time,” as opposed to “just in case,” business practices. Over the last decade, libraries have been abandoning just-in-case collections for just-in-time access. This practice has weakened global library networks and jeopardized librarians’ ability to provide long-term access to content. This session will expand upon the ideas presented in the short piece included as a handout, and it will also suggest lessons the community might learn from the economic environment.
