What are librarians worrying about?

Top Concerns Survey 2008, a report from SCONUL (the UK Society of College, National & University Libraries), 2008.  (Thanks to Charles Bailey.)

See esp. Table 2.2 on p. 18. Of eight surveyed concerns, institutional repositories ranked fourth and OA publishing ranked last in the level of "high concern" they raised.  The top three concerns were "access management", "provision of e-resources", and "other".
