In this optimistic new book, librarians examine how changes in society, the information industry, and libraries require iconoclastic thinking and acting on the part of the information specialists to take maximum advantage of the opportunities that are present to better the profession, the professionals, and services to their patrons. The focus of the volume is on managing functions typically associated with technical services. Recent changes to library functions such as the changed roles of managers and the necessity for fund-raising as a method of obtaining basic operating funds are discussed fully. Running across the varied chapters are recurring themes such as the need for flexibility in staffing and organizational structures, looking at the traditional in new ways, and convergence and union. The chapters, written by experienced academic librarians, will be of interest to both managers of libraries and to those who are concerned with how the libraries are managed. Students of library science will find this an invaluable guide to gaining a deeper knowledge of the changes in technical services, and how they relate to the general public coming into the library.
