Issues Facing Academic Libraries in the 1980's.
McCabe, Gerard B.
Observations of the Director of Libraries at Clarion State College, Pennsylvania, are presented on issues confronting academic libraries in the 1980's in two categories: constant or diminishing financial support, and increasing patron demand for services. Library materials and operating budgets, interlibrary cooperation, resource sharing, automation, staff size and development, and community support of academic libraries are mentioned in connection with library fiscal management. Access to library materials, computer-assisted literature searching, interlibrary loan services, preservation of library materials, staff development, and new library technology are noted as important considerations in dealing with increased library usage.
