Abstract: Libraries and Cultural Resources is the umbrella body for the University of Calgary’s museums, libraries, archives and special collections. Our vision is to be “A leader in the development of innovative information resources and services... In a converged environment, it successfully incorporates the resources and services of libraries, museums, archives, special collections, and a university press to provide outstanding support for scholarship, learning, and the creation of knowledge…” Striving towards this vision has involved a new organizational structure and co-location of the LAMs in a new state-of-the-art facility as well as an increased emphasis on centralized metadata services, on one-search discovery systems, and on developing unique research collections. It is changing the roles of curators, librarians and archivists and the way they work with each other and researchers.
