The place of libraries and librarians in astronomy is considered by 54 papers on the future of librarianship, metrics, training, open access, data curation and preservation, virtual communities, and use and access. Specific topics include the role of a virtual library in the coming decades, supporting the public communication of science as part of the library mission, creating a database of scientific papers that use observational data, electronically accessible astronomy resources, novel features of a small open-access astronomical journal, copyright issues in managing the contents of the Indian Institute of Astrophysics Archives, astronomy education and outreach in a large urban university, and a librarian's perspective on the use of electronic journals in astronomy and astrophysics libraries and information centers in India. The proceedings are not indexed.
