The influence of digital technology on higher education libraries is discussed by recognised experts. The Kanazawa institute of Technology is Japan's largest institution of higher education specialising in engineering and technology. It is a world leader and collaborator in electronic initiatives, often in the forefront of systems design and telecommunications advancement. It is also the site of an annual symposium series on digital library development. The authors have pulled together an International cadre of leading thinkers and experimenters, all of whom have participated in these symposia, to provide their considered opinions concerning the influence of digital technology on teaching and learning in general, and the role of the library in the educational enterprise in particular. Their contributions have, in turn, been arranged into four thematic groupings, which range from envisioning the future, and facing major challenges, to creating projects and programmes, and developing digital libraries. An informative read for anyone involved in higher education.
