At the TU Delft Library, we have made a decisive choice for digitalisation. This means that wherever possible we will offer E-only services. Only if digital resources are not possible, will we also offer physical services. [pdf]
Libraries are not ends in themselves, but serve the interests of the organizations of which they are a part. As university emphasis varies around research, education and career poles, we can expect to see libraries evolve to support those emphases more strongly.
