Science Libraries in the Self Service Age

Science Libraries in the Self Service Age: Developing New Services, Targeting New Users suggests ways in which libraries can remain relevant to their institution. This book describes the myriad of new services and user communities which science librarians have recently incorporated into their routines. Where applicable, the book focuses on both researcher needs and the simple economics that emphasize the need for new service development. Science librarians will have to adapt to changing behaviors and needs if they want to remain a part of their organization’s future. As this trend has hastened science librarians to develop new services, many of them aimed at audiences or user groups which had not typically used the library, this book provides timely tactics on which to build a cohesive plan. Provides a list of practical, targeted services which science librarians can implement Presents unified topics previously only dealt with separately (data management services, scholarly communication, digital preservation, etc.) Considers economic and resource issues in developing new services Written by an experienced librarian at a global institution
