The end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s have been a time of great change for academic libraries and librarians. Rapid developments in technology have revolutionized the libraries' means and mission, while declining budgets have adversely impacted the ability of librarians to carry out their roles. The literature of academic librarianship today reflects these changes and points to the direction in which academic libraries are headed. This book is a comprehensive guide to book chapters and articles written on academic librarianship between 1990 and 1993. Entries for nearly 1,700 works are grouped in six topical chapters for ease of use. Each entry includes an informative annotation that summarizes the key points made by the authors, the major findings of research projects, and the names and locations of libraries with innovative programs. Extensive author, article, book/journal title, and subject indexes conclude the work. The volume is a useful tool for locating specific information on various topics, and it is a forecast of the future of academic libraries.
