The Academic Library in the American University Book Review:

It has been argued that librarians are losing influence on their campuses. Atkins responds to this assertion with a critical analysis of the role the academic library plays within the university setting and pursues how the library may meet the expectations of faculty and administration. The early chapters review the changes in higher education from 1638 to the present. 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.
