Academic Branch Libraries in Changing Times

Are academic branch libraries going to be extinct in the near future? In these difficult economic times, when collections are being digitized at a quick pace, is there still a need for a separate unit within close proximity to the department, school, or college with a subject-based or subject-specific collection? Academic Branch Libraries in Changing Times gives a brief historical overview of the role of a branch academic library. It reviews the current situation from a practitioner's point of view and suggests solutions for the future. The author provides practical and realistic solutions to academic libraries that can be executed in a daily operating cycle and offers examples drawn from her own wide-ranging experience in managing the Engineering and Physical Sciences branch library at the University of Maryland. She also covers a variety of issues such as staffing and public services, collections, and bibliographic instruction.
