The later chapters take up the major change that has influenced the role of the academic library in the last two decades: the information revolution.

Leveraging Library Resources in a World of Fiscal Restraint and Institutional Change Book Review:

Given the continuing cataclysmic shift in the economic landscape in the last few years, librarians have been forced to reevaluate not only the traditional services that they offer but also their continued existence and relevance to their academic institutions. Given the ‘new normal’ of tighter constraint on personnel and materials budgets, librarians now are compelled to find new ways of offering services and forging new relationships with departments and programs outside the traditional library setting. This volume highlights a number of projects being implemented in academic libraries including: rethinking the entire concept of a library, redefining physical space for new collaborative uses, adapting entrepreneurial techniques to acquire funding, creating new research tools and improving services, forging new consortial partnerships, allying more closely the mission of the library with that of the institution, and adapting public library programs to academic libraries. By re-examining the purpose of an academic library under continuing financial duress, librarians can ensure that their libraries will continue to have relevance to higher education. This book was published as a special issue of College & Undergraduate Libraries.

The Changing Academic Library Book Review:

As higher education has evolved through recent decades, college and university libraries also have forged pathways to serve faculty and students more effectively. Academic and research libraries have been early adopters of digital technologies and have provided leadership and training to help remake the academic enterprise. Universities and libraries are operating in a rapidly changing information environment. In this context, libraries have been redefined as facilitators to a world of information far beyond physical collections, providing access to global information through online resources and systems, and also creating their own digital content. Staff and student expectations are developing in line with these changes in the teaching, research and scholarly communication environment. Libraries need to take a strategic role in supporting academics and students within this technologically rich and constantly evolving context. Digital collections and digital scholarship are now mainstream library activities, core to research and teaching. The technology environment will be constantly and rapidly changing, with the expectations and requirements of information users increasing, and with libraries needing to provide an excellent search and discovery experience for their customers. As access to mobile devices becomes ubiquitous, users will expect seamless access to information and services, provided anywhere, anytime.The Changing Academic Library: Operations, Culture and Environment provides academic administrators and librarians a better understanding of the issues facing the library during this time of change, and the role of the library in the evolving campus of the future. It helps academic librarians plan, implement, and manage changes to the fundamental structure of their organizations.
