Balancing Evolving "Real" and "Virtual" Patron Needs: A Challenge for Access Services in Academic Libraries
Croft, Janet Brennan
Journal of Access Services, v3 n4 p13-27 2005
Academic libraries are at a crossroads, facing increasing competition from other student services within their institutions and from commercial entities that duplicate their services. Examining some broader trends in education leads to suggestions as to how libraries might re-examine legacy services and assumptions and consider new directions. Specifically, the contributions that might be made by areas traditionally considered part of access services are considered. An annotated bibliography is included. (Contains 1 note.)
