Kahn will move on to the post of vice chairman of ProQuest's Board of Directors, so he won't be far from the action.

Of course, along with that come all the issues and considerations involved: copyright/DRM, rising costs of digital collections, format issues, and the rapidly evolving publishing market. For librarians, it's all about providing enhanced services through the emerging technologies. They had a lot to look at and think about in New Orleans.
