This president of yours sounds kinda like a jerk. I know my past director was hot on getting rid of the physical collections, but no extra help was provided to maintain the online collections and my coworkers were not exactly well-schooled in dealing with online resources and how to promote, utilize, or maintain them. That, and in many cases, the online items that were being purchased to replace the print materials usually came with yearly or multi-yearly contracts, such that we'd have to pay and pay and pay for an item that, until it was removed once the online version was shown to be operable, we'd previously owned in perpetuity. I think Cory has pointed out before how the publishers are milking libraries for all they're worth, but that's another question for another day.
So not only no library, but no help for the handicapped to make use of the collections being advertised to the community. So, yeah, sounds like quite the asshole.
