Moving mountains and crossing rivers : a report from the second conference on library physical delivery

by Horton, Valerie

Abstract

This article is a summary of the second Moving Mountains Conference on the physical delivery of materials. The Conference was held in Cincinnati in September 2008. An ad hoc group of librarians involved in delivery regularly meet to discuss best practices and new applications. This article covers similarities between the logistic industry and libraries, a survey of physical delivery practitioners, and new trends in home delivery and automatic material handling systems. The growth of physical delivery, models of delivery, vendor relationships, and the Rethinking Resource Sharing group are also discussed.
