New Dimensions for Academic Library Service.
Josey, E. J., Ed.
The 25 essays written for this compilation focus on a variety of initiatives undertaken by librarians, information scientists, and educators to give increased service with diminished funding. They show librarians responding to a changed environment through creating new organizational patterns, making use of new technologies, and participating cooperatively in library networks. In four parts, the book focuses on the academic library as a vital component of higher education; new approaches to solving academic library problems; unscrambling critical academic library issues; and patterns of library information systems, networks, and consortia. The essays provide an analysis of some of the most pressing problems facing higher education and the responses made by the academic library and other informational services. They range widely in their degree of criticism of the past and plead for a shift of emphasis from traditional library practices to radical ones. (Author/PF)
