Academic Libraries: Achieving Excellence in Higher Education. Proceedings of the National Conference of the Association of College and Research Libraries (6th, Salt Lake City, Utah, April 12-14, 1992).
Kirk, Thomas, Ed.
These proceedings begin with four theme papers on civil rights, information technologies, the Information Society, and measures of success. Fifty-two contributed papers are then organized into seven broad subject areas: (1) academic librarianship (stereotypes of librarians, minority leadership, collegial leadership, curriculum reform, library services to remote sites, librarians as academic advisors, and support for university decision makers); (2) bibliographic control (circulation of dissertations and cataloger/archivist cooperation); (3) bibliographic instruction (freshman writers, CD-ROM usage, learning style theory, composition/bibliographic instruction connections, and instructional design); (4) collection management and development (research collections, pricing, African American reference sources, resource sharing, output measures for cartographic collections, psychology collection development, and access to primary sources); (5) general administration (paperbacks, diversification, library structures, library/computing partnerships, systematic planning in small academic libraries, and organizational change); (6) readers services (services to visiting scholars, electronic and printed information in English studies, evaluation of research service, science faculty's information seeking behavior, and relevance judgments); and (7) technology (interface design and customizing the catalog). Program sessions on administration, bibliographic instruction, buildings, collection development, community college libraries, cultural diversity, genealogy, international librarianship, personnel, preservation, public services, and technology are summarized. Author and subject indexes are included. (MES)
