Jim Neal: “Library Virtuality, Virtuosity, and Virtuousness: Do Students and Researchers Still Need Libraries?”

About the Thomas Lecture Series
Jack E. Thomas, who serves as the chairman of the Libraries’ National Council advisory group and as a member of the university’s Board of Trustees, wanted to support the discussion of libraries and technology at Washington University, continuing the outstanding work that Shirley K. Baker, former Vice Chancellor for Scholarly Resources & Dean of University Libraries, led in the areas of networked information and resource sharing. The annual Thomas Lecture Series, held in Baker’s honor, is on library- or technology-related topics, bringing a leading expert in the field to campus each year.
