I’m always interested in the present and future of libraries. There’s a steady stream of reports from various organizations that are broadly relevant to the (mostly academic) library biz but they can be tough to keep track of. I thought I’d aggregate some of those here. Of course I’ve very likely missed a few, so suggestions are welcome in the comments.

I’ve done similar compilations recently here and here.
