The University of California Davis University Library will investigate the future of academic research library technical services by assessing the current landscape and developing a roadmap for strategic planning and investments in the coming years. This roadmap can be continuously updated as new data models, standards, workflows, and practices emerge and evolve. Currently, complex workflows and interdependent systems have constrained academic libraries from fully leveraging the benefits and efficiencies of modern technological infrastructures. This research study will include acquisitions, licensing, cataloging, processing, digitization, and newly identified areas that will encourage using technological resources.
