    "Which of the following predictions about the future of libraries were made by university administrators?

    Within five years, libraries will focus exclusively on electronic resources
    Academic computing and libraries will merge.
    Librarians who do not produce will be reassigned or fired.
    The library will only house materials that are actively used.
    Libraries will shrink, in both collection size and staffing, and funding will be redirected from libraries to more critical and productive areas of the university."
