Finding Common Ground: Creating the Library of the Future without Diminishing the Library of the Past. The New Library Series.
LaGuardia, Cheryl, Ed.; Mitchell, Barbara A., Ed.
Adapting today's libraries to better serve tomorrow's needs challenges even the most forward-thinking library staff. This book offers practical, workable solutions from several authorities in the industry. Fifty-five conference papers are included and divided into the following subject areas: "Technology and the Network: Daimons or Demons?"; "Satisfying Our Users"; "The Changing Face of Research"; "Changing Materials, Changing Economies"; "The Future of Intellectual Organization"; and "Our Individual and Collective Futures: The Library as an Organization." Also included are the keynote address by Clifford A. Lynch, "Finding Common Ground," and the all-conference speech by Walt Crawford, "Uncommon Knowledge: Mythbreaking for the Future." A list of demonstrated papers presented at a special no-conflict conference session is also included. (AEF)
