English abstract

We are at a point in technical services librarianship where many of us acknowledge that with so many changes happening, with ideas flying, and new standards swirling around us without any real assurance that any of them will work or will help us to do a better and more efficient job, as staffing and budgets are shrinking and resources are becoming more complex, it feels as though the sky is falling. In this chapter, we share our thoughts and views on the future of traditional technical services and discuss whether there is a future for traditional cataloging, acquisitions and technical services functions.
