16 librarians from four countries took part in the “Future Colloquium” of the Münster Medical Library on pressing issues of librarianship, which takes place every sixth year. Expectations and desires were priorized in a moderation round and then systematically discussed. Three topics were anticipated: “Strategy” (presented by Oliver Obst), “Students” (presented by Anna Schlosser) and “Web 2.0” (presented by Guus van den Brekel). A group work on library scenarios shifted the focus on new, innovative services, given that old, traditional services such as purchasing, surpass the library as well as erode former library monopolies. They were experiments with new formulas such as: “Library = Information Specialist for the visit” or “Library = Scientific Publishing Support Agent”. Finally, instructions for practice were proposed.
