The 5 trends are

1. Users are discovering relevant resources outside of traditional library systems.

2. Users expect discovery and delivery to coincide.

3. Expanding use of portable Intenet devices.

4. Recommendation increasingly push discovery.

5. Users rely increasingly on non-traditional information objects.
