Abstract

This paper explores the logistics and implications of implementing the University of Nottingham's strategy of accelerated adoption of digital resources in the library which houses our Arts and Humanities collections and serves researchers and students in these traditionally print-focused disciplines. Finite budgets, the availability of electronic resources, the importance of legacy print collections, and patron expectations and preferences all help shape the strategy's implementation in this particular context.
