Ferment in College Libraries: The Impact of Information Technology.
Dupuy, T. N.
The author visited 36 educational institutions and 22 other institutions in the United States and abroad, and interviewed 120 scholars and specialists to survey the status of American college libraries in relation to new educational technology. After defining the modern academic library and college information system, he identifies the sources of ferment--the information explosion, rapidly developing new technology, and new concepts in education. Using some existing libraries and information centers as illustrations, he discusses some of the trends in academic library procedures. He also discusses certain challenges the electronic revolution poses for information science technique. After outlining relevant activities abroad, he offers some conclusions and recommendations for preliminary planning and action in the development of facilities and operational concepts for a library and comparable resource collections in non-book media.
