David Lewis in Ohio

OhioLINK was pleased to host David Lewis, Director of the Indiana University/Purdue University at Indianapolis Library, to talk about “Disruptive Innovation and the Academic Library”. The PowerPoint of his presentation is in IUPUI’s institutional repository, and I recommend it as a gentle visual introduction to the application of Clayton Christensen’s Theory of Disruptive Innovations to the field of academic libraries. (See his earlier works for a textual introduction or consult the Jester’s bibliography.)
