Description

The new essays on today's academic librarians examine above all their functions and responsibilities-since these have greatly changed just in recent years, especially in matters of technology. These librarians-essayists step away from yesterday's stereotypes and explain at length their new roles. From digital resources and special collections, to web development and new outreach initiatives, the topics covered by the essays in this book will reassure new librarians and stimulate prospective librarians as they realise the enhanced and varied positions that are available in the 21st century academic library.
