Digital Dilemmas is a full-day symposium that brings together nationally recognized experts who will outline the primary challenges facing libraries in a digital world; provide an understanding of the digital information economy and its effect on scholarship; and suggest future opportunities for libraries.

The symposium, which is hosted by METRO and sponsored in part by OCLC, will provide librarians and library administrators with the opportunity to learn from leaders in the field and network with colleagues from the region working to address these challenges and seize potential opportunities.

Presenters include Clifford A. Lynch (Executive Director, Coalition for Networked Information), Evan Owens (Chief Technology Officer, Portico), Roger Schonfeld (Research Manager, Ithaka), Patricia Aufderheide (Director, Center for Social Media, American University), and Dan Cohen (Director, Center for History and New Media, George Mason University).
