The first edition of Ellis Mount's University Science and Engineering Libraries pioneered in this specialized branch of library service. This new edition covers all aspects of science and technical libraries at both colleges and universities. Problems and techniques of management, technical services, user services, collection management, and physical facilities are discussed in detail. More importantly, this edition has been thoroughly updated and includes greater emphasis on computer applications, networks, consortia, and the use of the latest technology. As part of the research for this second edition, the author visited campuses throughout the United States and Canada to study their libraries first hand. His experiences have enabled him to identify the latest trends and developments in the profession. Included in the text are layouts of several science-technical libraries and a chapter on facility planning. Selected references are found at the end of each chapter. A survey of librarians and users on sixteen campuses--a virtual state-of-the-art report on current practices in science-technical libraries--is included as an appendix.
