This section represents the second part of the theme issue that Brad Eden edited and presented in Library Hi Tech, Vol. 23 No. 1, 2005. It continues the examination of how the technology-rich new library at University of Nevada at Las Vegas changed the way librarians worked and the way readers interacted with library resources. As Brad said in his earlier introduction (Eden, 2005): The second part of this two-part issue (to be published as Vol. 23 No. 3) will provide technology updates on the automated storage and retrieval (LASR) system and the 3Me Digital Identification System technology, how public access to government information has been addressed, recent developments in the Collaborative Learning Center, further reorganization in the Knowledge Access Management (KAM) Division and the creation of a new department at the UNLV Libraries named Web and Digitization Services (WDS), how the Collection Development and Management (CDM) Division and subject librarians have responded to the tremendous growth in student and faculty populations at UNLV, how the UNLV Libraries developed their first virtual branch library, musings by the Director of Special Collections on the place of print culture in a digital library, and recent assessment activities at the UNLV Libraries. This kind of in-depth look at the experience of a single institution as it grapples with a wide range of new technologies gives us all new insight about how our own institutions might react. Readers interested in earlier issues that focused on other libraries might want to compare this with the double issue on the University of Wisconsin Libraries in Library Hi Tech Vol. 16 Nos 3 and 4, 1998.
