1. Greater demand for digital content
• E-Books, Electronic content, Digitized local content
• Printed materials will exist, but demand will continue to decline
2. Libraries will be defined by

Their local and unique digital content
Their information access portals
Their technological capabilities that help in the creation of new knowledge
3. Mobile access and will become essential
•
Majority of information access will be via handheld devices
