Academic Change and the Library Function; Papers Delivered at a Meeting of the College and Research Division, Pennsylvania Library Association, October 1969.
Stone, C. Walter, Comp.
This volume is an attempt to encourage academic librarians to use media as well as books in their libraries. It is composed of three papers, two by educators and one by a computer-oriented librarian. Dr. Ralph W. Tyler, former director of the Center of Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, Stanford, California, discusses the changed educational scene and the relevance of present methods of student selection, curriculum, teaching and the educational bureaucracy. Dr. James W. Brown, dean of Graduate Studies and Research, San Jose State College, calls for a multipurpose academic library which actively concerns itself with knowledge finding, manipulation, assessment, and use in instruction. Professor Kent, director of the University of Pittsburgh's Office of Communication Services, dreams of a library future encompassing the use of new devices, techniques, and materials for user service.
