  • Research libraries have long been considered the intellectual hub of a community, whether it’s a university or a city. With the shift to digital content, network-based services, and globalization, research libraries have been challenged to adapt in unprecedented ways. Some even question their ongoing importance. Drawing on his experience as the former president of Amherst College and the current president and CEO of the New York Public Library, Anthony Marx speculates on the future of research libraries.
