REIMAGINING THE ACADEMIC LIBRARY

CAREER TRANSITIONS FOR LIBRARIANS

Proven Strategies for Moving to Another Type of Library

By David W. Lewis

“An important resource for academic librarians, higher education administrators, and those involved in strategic planning to help guide the discussions of how to allocate library resources.” —Library Journal

Edited by Davis Erin Anderson and Raymond Pun

“The book provides a candid and readable account of the disruptors that the profession currently faces, and many librarians will find the content valuable for starting conversations about the future within their institutional settings. The use of ‘disruptive innovation’ nicely sets the tone for the content of the book. . . . Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students through researchers/faculty; professionals/ practitioners.”—CHOICE Reimagining the Academic Library paints a simple straightforward picture of the changes affecting academic libraries and what academic librarians need to do to respond to the changes to guide future library practice. David Lewis provides a readable survey of the current state of academic library practice and proposes where academic libraries need to go in the future to provide value to their campuses. His primary focus is on collections as this is the area with the greatest opportunity for change and is the driver of most library cost. Lewis provides an accessible framework for thinking about how library practice needs to adjust in the digital environment.

“An important book for professionals seeking horizons unknown, as well as administrators looking to update staff skills and job descriptions. Also a valuable addition to library science curricula.”—Library Journal Career Transitions for Librarians explores the multifaceted roles of the librarian profession from personal narratives of professional librarians who have successfully worked and transitioned from one type of library to another. • •

What kinds of skill sets and experiences were they able to transfer or draw on from their previous work experiences? How can you make these successful transitions as well?

From interview tips to developing relevant and transferable skill sets, this unique guide offers testimonials with a targeted advice and job strategies for readers interested in making these successful transitions during a time when there is a huge difficulty in securing a library job.

An Introduction for Support Staff

CATALOGING LIBRARY RESOURCES

WORKING WITH LIBRARY COLLECTIONS

By Marie Keen Shaw

By Hali R. Keeler

Written in clear language by someone who teaches cataloging in a library support staff program and featuring practical examples, Cataloging Library Resources will help library support staff become effective catalogers. Other books on this topic are written for professional librarians rather than support staff. And although 85% of library support staff do not hold professional degrees, many are expected to do the complex and technical work of catalogers. This book provides many examples that support staff can use to learn how to catalog all types of library print, media, and digital materials using the most up-to-date Library of Congress standards. Using this handbook as a guide, readers will be able to perform the ALA-LSSC cataloging and classification competencies and the new RDA, FRBR, and BIBFRAME standards. Dr. Marie Shaw is the author of the books Block Scheduling and Its Impact on School Media Centers; Library Technology and Digital Resources and the dissertation Teachers’ Learning of Technology. She currently teaches at Three Rivers Community College in Norwich, CT. 2017 • 262 pages 978-1-4422-7486-0 • $35.00 / £23.95 • Paper 978-1-4422-7485-3 • $75.00 / £49.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-7487-7 • $34.99 / £23.95 • eBook

Working with Collections deals with the technical service aspect of library work—the processes that put a book on the shelf or online. It provides an introduction to publishers, vendors, preparing items for use, and caring for items in the collections and is both a text for professors who teach in library support staff programs and their students, and an introductory manual for support staff who work in libraries. This material is written in clear language with practical examples of how performance can contribute to exemplary library service. It is aligned with the ALA support staff standards. Hali R. Keeler has been an adjunct professor since 1998 in the library technology program at Three Rivers Community College in Norwich, CT. 2017 • 196 pages 978-1-4422-7489-1 • $35.00 / £23.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-7488-4 • $75.00 / £49.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-7490-7 • $34.99 / £23.95 • eBook

FOUNDATIONS OF LIBRARY SERVICES An Introduction for Support Staff By Hali R. Keeler

LIBRARY TECHNOLOGY AND DIGITAL RESOURCES An Introduction for Support Staff By Marie Keen Shaw

“Shaw offers an engaging and highly practical text within a structure that will appeal to new entrants to library and information services, as well as library support staff who are already engaged with the practical application and use of digital technologies and resources. . . . [The book is] a useful primer for library support staff…. In particular, the inclusion of activities and discussion points at the end of each chapter are extremely useful and very transferable to any library instruction program or setting — it is for this reason that this book may well find its place within a staff development library.” —Multimedia Information & Technology 2016 • 248 pages 978-1-4422-5644-6 • $35.00 / £23.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-5643-9 • $75.00 / £49.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-5645-3 • $34.99 / £23.95 • eBook

“Keeler is thorough and uses real-life contemporary examples to connect traditional practices to modern times. Chapters are divided into three sections: materials, customer service, and access to information. Subjects covered include acquisitions, readers’ advisory, serving youth, assisting challenging patrons, intellectual freedom, and more. Each chapter states the library support staff certification (LSSC) competency being addressed and provides a glossary of terms, a chapter summary, discussion questions and activities, and a list of extensive references. Material is covered at a level of detail useful for library support staff. The chapters, while brief in length, are dense in content. Verdict: This is an excellent text for library science students and for library staff developing learning outcomes and training opportunities.” —Library Journal 2016 • 234 pages 978-1-4422-5641-5 • $35.00 / £23.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-5640-8 • $75.00 / £49.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-5642-2 • $34.99 / £23.95 • eBook

ASSESSING LIBRARY SPACE FOR LEARNING “A valuable contribution to the rapidly evolving field of academic library space assessment, this collection of engaging, practice-centered scholarship discusses space analysis through the wider lenses of learning theory and behavioral and environmental psychology. Equally important is the extensive coverage given to effective, informed methodological approaches to assessing the impact of the spaces we have created, and informing the design of those we envision.” —Christopher Stewart, School of Information Studies, Dominican University and Aauthor of The Academic Library Building in the Digital Age In Assessing Library Space for Learning, chapters discuss library usage at academic institutions and how that usage is an integral part of the student learning experience. Included are the perspectives of an architect who is tasked with designing library spaces with learning in mind, a psychologist whose professional research focuses on the concept of place, and a dynamic group of academic librarians who are dedicated to making the library conducive to the needs of their learners. This book is a combination of theory, practical and research based chapters with an overall focus on library space and learning. The authors discuss the intersections of library space and learning demonstrating the importance of the library space in our users’ lives. Susan E.

ASSEMBLING THE PIECES OF A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW Edited by Margaret J. Foster and Sarah T. Jewell

“Combining both practical tips and theoretical underpinnings, Assembling the Pieces of a Systematic Review provides an overview of the entire process of synthesis, from framing the research question to summarizing and reporting the findings. . . . Because of this broad approach and the emphasis on qualitative and mixed methods reviews, librarians in all fields, not just biomedicine, will find this instructive book of relevance when learning the basics of the evidence synthesis process.” —Melissa L. Rethlefsen, deputy director, Eccles Health Sciences Library, University of Utah Here is a complete guide for librarians seeking to launch or refine their systematic review services. Conducting searches for systematic reviews goes beyond expert searching and requires an understanding of the entire process of the systematic review. Running a systematic review service is complicated and requires constant updating and evaluation with new standards, more efficient methods, and improved reporting guidelines. After a brief introduction to systematic reviews, the book guides librarians in defining and marketing their services, covering topics such as when it is appropriate to ask for co-authorship and how to reach out to stakeholders.

“Writing Effectively in Print and on the Web lives up to its name—this concise, readable book makes the case for why good writing matters. Rebecca Blakiston has put together a practical manual filled with thoughtful observations and tips you can put to use immediately to write more effectively. This book should be required reading for every librarian!” —Courtney Greene McDonald, Indiana University Libraries The written word is our primary tool for communication—with colleagues, administrators, stakeholders, and users. Poor use of words can lead to misunderstandings and inefficiencies. Writing effectively will help you be a stronger colleague, manager, and librarian. In this book, you will learn how to: • Define your audience and your primary messages. • Simplify your writing so that it is succinct and understandable. • Structure your written content so that it is most usable and accessible to your audience. • Approach different forms of writing in a way that is most effective to getting your message across. • Establish a voice and tone that reflects the identity of your organization and yourself as a professional. The book covers writing for both print and Webbased publications and is aimed at all types of libraries.

“Margaret Henderson has made a significant contribution to the effort in libraries to develop their data-related services. Her deep understanding of the field and countless relationships with experts make her one of the few authorities in libraries that can write a comprehensive guide, such as this one, for the library community. Henderson’s book covers the background knowledge needed by all data librarians and ideas for advancing data management services. This book will be of great value to librarians at all career stages.” —Christopher Erdmann, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics Librarians can help increase the relevance of their library to the research and education mission of their institution by learning more about data and how to manage it. Data Management will guide readers through: • Understanding data management basics and best practices. • Using the reference interview to help with data management. • Writing data management plans for grants. • Starting and growing a data management service. • Finding collaborators inside and outside the library. • Collecting and using data in different disciplines.

CLIMATEQUAL

Edited by Charles B. Lowry

This book describes the application of The ClimateQUAL® survey protocol (originally Organizational Climate and Diversity Assessment– OCDA©) to over 55 libraries with thousands of individual respondents in the US, Canada and UK. The ClimateQUAL toolkit provides the ultimate management tool for effective organizational adaptation by employing deep assessment of a library’s staff opinions to plumb the dimensions of climate and organizational culture important for a healthy organization in a library setting. It tests critical attitudes around 26 validated dimensions. The ClimateQUAL survey measures include work attitudes, diversity climate, leadership and several other dimensions of library climate. The book describes the procedure for evaluating the structure and psychometric properties of each of these scales. The survey protocol provides feedback based on normative data from the libraries that have already participated. By using these normative scales and institutional results effectively, significant improvements can be achieved. Among other results, the ClimateQUAL research shows that the most effective techniques for remediation are not top-down, but those that engage the entire staff. Charles B.

THE LIBRARIANS OF CONGRESS “‘The legitimacy of any society is demonstrated by how it protects its libraries,’ states law professor Roy Balleste in the foreword to Nappo’s collection of short biographies of the men who have served as the Librarian of Congress. From that lofty assertion, Nappo presents a concise history of this often misunderstood institution as well as the first collection that includes both the stories and a photograph of these men. Listed in chronological order, each entry (between 10 and 20 pages long) is presented with a subtitle that adds context to the story and covers the entirety of the subject’s life, with special emphasis on his time at the LOC. A complete list of sources follows, for enterprising scholars who wish to expand upon the solid foundation presented here.” —Booklist The Librarians of Congress is the first book to contain the biographies of all these librarians. Beginning with a brief history of the Library of Congress, the book then contains short biographies of each of the thirteen Librarians of Congress, beginning with John J. Beckley and ending with James H. Billington. Each biography is accompanied by a photograph. A subject index concludes this work. Christian A.

Ideas from Library Journal

By Christian A. Nappo

“This book provides a comprehensive view of what is happening as libraries redefine spaces. The photographs are plentiful and colorful. The writings underscore both libraries’ desire to change in order to enhance library services, and the ongoing funding challenges libraries are facing. The creative solutions to omnipresent challenges can inspire libraries that are interested in renovating spaces.

STATISTICS FOR LIBRARY AND INFORMATION SERVICES

A Primer for Using Open Source R Software for Accessibility and Visualization By Alon Friedman

“Dr. Friedman’s book arrives at the right time as library and information professionals begin to grapple with the complexities of big data. This well-written and clearly organized primer will be a valuable addition to the LIS curriculum—it is clearly the moment for us to have a textbook that introduces statistics and an open source statistical computing language for our students and for information professionals from an ‘insider’ who knows our field well.” —Howard Rosenbaum, Department of Information and Library Science, Indiana University Statistics for Library and Information Services, written for non-statisticians, provides logical, user-friendly, and step-by-step instructions to make statistics more accessible for students and professionals in the field of Information Science. It emphasizes concepts of statistical theory and data collection methodologies, but also extends to the topics of visualization creation and display, so that the reader will be able to better conduct statistical analysis and communicate his/her findings.

ETHICS AND VALUES IN LIBRARIANSHIP RETHINKING LIBRARY TECHNICAL A History SERVICES By Wallace Koehler “In his book, Ethics and Values in Librarianship, Wallace Koehler provides a thoughtful overview of library philosophy and history, focusing on our ethical perspectives. . . . [The book] is a dense and thought-provoking work that’s full of historical insight and perspective. It will provide practicing librarians with much food for thought. . . . Students, library theorists, and practitioners will all find valuable insights here.”—Information Today “This is an excellent study of the ethics and values of the information world, which identifies key themes and lays out all the relevant arguments about them with a strong historical focus. It will be helpful to those, including students, looking at problems focusing on the library in the community.” —Library & Information History Ethics and Values in Librarianship addresses the processes of development of library and information sciences, largely but not exclusively in a western context. It focuses on the field’s ethics and values. Here, Wallace Koehler, a leading researcher in the area of information ethics, debunks the prevailing notion that library and information science concepts and ethics have and remain constant. He demonstrates that in almost all areas of practice, this is simply not so. Instead of staying the same, our professional ethics and standards have evolved or shifted in their application as well as in the recognition of those standards by practitioners and users. Some of these changes are of very recent etiology.

Redefining Our Profession for the Future Edited by Mary Beth Weber

Creating the 21st-Century Academic Library Series

The academic library is dramatically different today than it was only ten years ago. And with it, the profession of the academic librarian is also undergoing significant changes. Managing digital resources in all its forms, from telecommunications to storage and access devices, is central to its new roles. Creating, curating and preserving digital information is also key to the new librarianship. And what about services to its clients? We can’t expect the redefined academic library to assume its final shape any time soon, if ever, but the transformation is well underway. This series, Creating the 21st-Century Academic Library, explores this topic from a number of different perspectives.

OPEN ACCESS AND THE FUTURE OF SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATION

By Kevin L. Smith and Katherine A. Dickson

This volume, the second of two in the series Creating the 21st-Century Academic Library that deals with the topic of open access in academic libraries, focuses on the implementation of open access in academic libraries. Chapters on the legalities and practicalities of open access in academic libraries address the issues associated with copyright, licensing, and intellectual property and include support for courses that require open access distribution of student work. The topic of library services in support of open access is explored, including the library’s role in providing open educational resources, and as an ally and driver of their adoption, for example, by helping defray author fees that are required for open access articles. A detailed look at open access in the context of undergraduate research is provided and considers how librarians can engage undergraduates in conversations about open access. Kevin L. Smith is the dean of libraries at the University of Kansas, and was previously the director of copyright and scholarly communications at Duke University. Katherine A. Dickson is a recent graduate of the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 2017 • 340 pages 978-1-4422-7503-4 • $45.00 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-7502-7 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4422-7504-1 • $44.99 / £29.95 • eBook

MARKETING AND OUTREACH FOR THE ACADEMIC LIBRARY

By Kevin L. Smith and Katherine A. Dickson

Edited by Bradford Lee Eden

It is impossible to imagine the future of academic libraries without an extensive consideration of open access—the removal of price and permission barriers from scholarly research online. As textbook and journal subscription prices continue to rise, improvements in technology make online dissemination of scholarship less expensive, and faculty recognize the practical and philosophical appeal of making their work available to wider audiences. As a consequence, libraries have begun to consider a wide variety of open access “flavors” and business models. These new possibilities have significant impact on both library services and collection policies, and the call for new skills within library staffing. This book focuses on policy and infrastructure for libraries that wish to provide leadership on their campus in the transition to more open forms of scholarship. Chapters in the book discuss how to make the case for open access on campus, as well as the political and policy implications of libraries that want to become publishing entities. Infrastructure issues are also addressed including metadata standards and research management services. Also considered here is how interlibrary loan, preservation and the library’s role in providing textbooks, support the concept of open access.

“These papers demonstrate the wide range of methods that libraries use for promotion, ranging from the use of physical space and events to social media to the use of embedded librarians. Two of the most interesting chapters are one that focuses on an innovative collaborative online special-collections project (www.highway89.org), and another that does not discuss marketing per se, but rather a paradigm shift in librarianship. This collection will be of interest to academic librarians who want to do more outreach to their campuses and who can follow some of the models presented here.”—Booklist This book is focused on new approaches and initiatives in marketing the academic library, as well as the importance of outreach through partnerships and collaborations both internal and external to the library.

RETHINKING TECHNICAL SERVICES

New Frameworks, New Skill Sets, New Tools, New Roles Edited by Bradford Lee Eden

“Eden’s Rethinking Technical Services is specific and practical, and describes some interesting innovative projects. . . . If you are reading to find out where technical services experiments are going on and might continue (without guarantees its forecasts are correct), Eden’s book is . . . revealing. . . . [This book] merit[s] a serious reader’s attention.”—Technicalities “Every chapter in this book . . . is useful and offers solid advice and tips in the practice of technical services librarianship. Each chapter ends with a thorough list of references that will be most useful to the readers. This is a very relevant and useful book that is a must-read for those librarians with a passion for technical services and it will make a valuable addition to any technical services department’s collection.” —Technical Services Quarterly 2016 • 122 pages 978-1-4422-5789-4 • $45.00 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-5788-7 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4422-5790-0 • $44.99 / £29.95 • eBook

This book focuses on creating partnerships and developing new roles for libraries in the 21st century. It includes such topics such as consulting, coaching, assessment and engagement partnerships, university commercialization, adult student support, librarianfaculty partnerships in developing and supporting new academic courses, and creating and staffing the information commons. The concept of embedded librarianship is touched upon in the context of extending the role of the librarian outside the library. The chapters in this volume demonstrate that just as students are extending the ways in which they learn, librarians must embrace new roles and modalities if they are to provide the types of support required by patrons. A typical example of growing importance: massive open online courses (MOOCs) create challenges and opportunities as they are constantly evolving; they change fundamentally the way students interact with teachers, their fellow students, any course content, and existing or new library services. To survive, librarians need to be engaged in ways that push beyond current professional limits in order to better support the needs of learners.

CREATING RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURES IN THE 21ST-CENTURY ACADEMIC LIBRARY Conceiving, Funding, and Building New Facilities and Staff Edited by Bradford Lee Eden

Creating Research Infrastructures in the 21st-Century Academic Library focuses on research infrastructures, bringing together such topics as research and development in libraries, dataset management, e-science, grants and grant writing, digital scholarship, data management, library as publisher, web archiving, and the research lifecycle. Individual chapters deal with the formation of Research & Development teams; emerging scholarly forms and new collaborative approaches to knowledge creation, dissemination, and preservation; managing small databases requiring the same level of support as large databases: metadata, digital preservation and curation, and technical support. Motivation for such services is provided in a chapter that considers how assessment and data now drive decisions and new services in higher education in general and academic libraries in particular and how statistical data can help to tell stories, make decisions, and move in new directions. Conceptualization of the research process also receives attention through the presentation of a research lifecycle in the university environment with the library as an integral partner and leader. 2015 • 220 pages 978-1-4422-5241-7 • $45.00 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-5240-0 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4422-5242-4 • $44.99 / £29.95 • eBook

CUTTING-EDGE RESEARCH IN DEVELOPING THE LIBRARY OF THE FUTURE

ENHANCING TEACHING AND LEARNING IN THE 21ST-CENTURY ACADEMIC LIBRARY

Edited by Bradford Lee Eden

By Bradford Lee Eden

“[The book is] timely, useful, and well-researched. . . . Also especially strong are the three chapters at the end of the book, all of which are from a technical services perspective. These chapters could easily form the core of a foundational text on e-resources management and linked open data and would be particularly useful to technical services managers who are looking to build their team’s competencies to handle these new workflows. . . . Academic library administrators, technical services managers, and library science faculty and students will find this book to be valuable in providing a broad overview of emerging trends and services. This book would be very much at home in any library that supports a library science curriculum.” —Technical Services Quarterly

“Many academic librarians from domestic and international libraries have contributed essays on innovative programs at their respective higher learning institutions. These essays present library programs designed to keep the institution current—and even ahead of technological trends. . . . The programs are realistic and simple to replicate for a range of libraries, including those with little room in their budget for new innovation. The majority of programs were successful, but there are some examples of ideas that did not work (most notably the library bookstore), and these serve as a warning to libraries attempting similar projects. Purchase this for academic libraries looking for ideas on how to re-model their practices for the 21st century.” —VOYA

This book explores examples of exciting new library services and workflows for the library profession to model and adapt for their own communities and patrons.

This volume explores the initiatives in student learning and training that are underway in our academic libraries. The 13 chapters range from librarians redesigning the space in the library in order to assume control of the campus bookstore to implementing a MOOC where the problems of providing material to potentially thousands of students taking an online course must somehow overcome copyright restrictions.

Fourth Edition

By Richard P. Smiraglia With Jihee Beak

This fourth edition is a supplementary text for a graduate music cataloging course. This edition conforms to the new instructions and paradigms represented in Resource Description and Access (RDA). RDA instructions for printed music, recorded music and music video are accompanied by advice, examples, illustrations and complete catalog records, including versions in MARC21 format. Consistent with RDA, the chapter on form and choice of access points found in earlier editions is gone, replaced with a chapter on authorized access points. The concept of “uniform title” has evolved into the concept of the “preferred title,” as part of an authorized access point, which might require manipulation and addition of some elements for disambiguation and collocation. Only three chapters are used for description of printed music, sound recordings and video recordings. Many of the older LP examples were removed as were VHS video recordings. Multimedia packages are now rare in the marketplace, but streaming audio and video are quite evident so examples now include those media. Facsimile examples from the third edition have been retained and many new examples have been added. Richard P. Smiraglia is professor at the School of Information Studies, University of WisconsinMilwaukee, and is currently editor-in-chief of the journal Knowledge Organization. 2017 • 222 pages 978-1-4422-7628-4 • $55.00 / £37.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-7627-7 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-7629-1 • $54.99 / £37.95 • eBook

An Introduction

By Lois Mai Chan and Athena Salaba

“[T]he book is a great resource and collects a lot of cataloging information that is otherwise dispersed. It would be a valuable resource to a new cataloger or any cataloger needing help interpreting RDA. It is a text for catalogers in any type of library and for any type of material (including nontraditional materials). It should be found in every library school library as a reference resource.” —Technical Services Quarterly The fourth edition of the late Lois Mai Chan’s classic Cataloging and Classification covers the analysis and representation of methods used in describing, organizing, and providing access to resources made available in or through libraries. Since the last edition published in 2007, there have been dramatic changes in cataloging systems from the Library of Congress. The most notable being the shift from AACR2 to Resource Description and Access (RDA) as the new standard developed by the Library of Congress. With the help of the coauthor, Athena Salaba, this text is modified throughout to conform to the new standard. Dr. Athena Salaba is associate professor in the School of Library and Information Science at Kent State University. The late Lois Mai Chan was formerly Professor Emerita in the School of Library and Information Science at the University of Kentucky, Lexington. 2016 • 800 pages 978-1-4422-3249-5 • $65.00 / £44.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-3248-8 • $100.00 / £70.00 • Hardback 978-1-4422-3250-1 • $64.99 / £44.95 • eBook

CREATIVE LIBRARY MARKETING AND PUBLICITY Best Practices

Edited by Robert J. Lackie and M. Sandra Wood

“No matter the community that a particular library serves—small town, large city, or school or college campus—all need to find ways to reach out and connect with their target markets. Discovering new approaches and gaining insights from a variety of institutions can help personnel to build and enhance their own marketing plans and increase the effectiveness of their library’s outreach. This is the strength of this collection of case studies gathered by Lackie and Wood. The 12 investigations come from libraries large and small, public and academic, with marketing budgets of all sizes. . . . Verdict: Librarians, marketing directors, and administrators will take away ideas and enlightenment from these success stories of libraries that have hit the mark of connecting with their target audiences.”—Library Journal Robert J.

TAKE YOUR LIBRARY WORKSHOPS ONLINE! By Anne Grant and Diana Finkle

An Ethics-Based Approach

The ethos of every library is to serve and to instruct. Library professionals teach every day in the sense that they show patrons where to find books or how to use computers. Increasingly, however, library users just don’t have the time to attend face-to-face workshops in advance of needs that they may have. They want to know the answer to their questions when THEY need it, not when YOU teach it. Take Your Library Workshops Online! helps you move valuable “teachable moments” from the physical library or classroom to virtual spaces. It features reallife examples of how to: create online synchronous sessions; brief tutorials; and pointed screen captures.

By Connie Strittmatter and Virginia K. Bratton

Teaching Plagiarism Prevention to College Students provides an innovative approach to plagiarism instruction by grounding it in ethics theory. By providing an ethics foundation to plagiarism instruction, this book helps the plagiarism instructor to address both unintentional and intentional plagiarism behaviors among students. This book provides tools to address why plagiarism is an important ethical issue in an academic environment.

Connecting Library Instruction with the Curriculum “This book is a case study of how university librarians collaborated with faculty to integrate information literacy instruction in a selected curriculum. The authors address the challenges of institutional reality, instructing students, and collaborating with faculty. They initially developed lessons for students in composition classes; their approach was expanded for science and nursing classes. The narrative explains lesson goals, planning processes, lesson activities, helping faculty understand the importance, scaffolding, and assessment. Selected worksheets, research guides, and less on study outlines are featured. The information will be helpful to high school and post-secondary librarians implementing a similar program.”—School Library Connection Designed for librarians who offer library instruction within the constraints of the hour-long one-shot, this book proposes a method for redesigning one-shot instruction that is both realistic and integrated into the larger curriculum. Working with faculty teams from academic departments, the authors used the collaborative Lesson Study method to redesign undergraduate research instruction. 2015 • 188 pages 978-1-4422-3866-4 • $58.00 / £39.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-3865-7 • $100.00 / £70.00 • Hardback 978-1-4422-3867-1 • $57.99 / £39.95 • eBook

EXPERT SEARCHING IN THE GOOGLE AGE

Resources and Techniques for Making Decisions, Solving Problems, and Answering Questions

By Terry Ann Jankowski

“Terry Ann Jankowski summarizes a semesterlong reference course. Although written for the nascent health sciences librarian, Jankowski has covered the basics of reference: the interview, building a search, reviewing and evaluating results, running an improved search, managing citations, etc. Her long-time familiarity with health sciences means she focuses on what these steps would like in PubMed or Embase, but these skills are transferable to every reference interaction. . . . Overall, this work would be a nice supplement for health science librarians but also any head of reference/public services looking to keep a local collection of reference training materials.” —American Reference Books Annual How do expert searchers fit into the Google age? Is there still a role for them? How can you be the best searcher you can be? What tools can you use to develop your skills and build better searches? These questions and more are covered by Jankowski. After making a case for the value librarians can bring to the searching process, whether using Google or other databases, Jankowski takes you through the entire search cycle and offers a glimpse into the future of searching.

ONLINE SEARCHING

A Guide to Finding Quality Information Efficiently and Effectively “In her comprehensive primer to online searching, Markey provides readers with a detailed, step-bystep tour of how to search for information online. Although general Internet tools are discussed, the author emphasizes library-based resources, such as online catalogs, propriety databases, and licensed products. . . . Verdict: Library and information science (LIS) faculty who teach the fundamentals of searching online will find this text to be useful.”—Library Journal “Our traditional models of accessing information—library catalogs and abstracting and indexing services—were developed to ease access to scholarly resources in the print era. In the digital era, new ways of getting to the resources are necessary. Karen Markey, who has analyzed access to database content as it has evolved over the past four decades, has written a textbook, Online Searching. Throughout, she emphasizes that librarians’ unique contribution is their ability to access quality information from trusted sources. Typically, this material is not readily available on the open web but through licensed databases. Markey describes the types of databases and stresses the presearch preparations of the reference interview, the considerations of the facets of the topic to be searched, and the evaluation of the database to be used.” —American Libraries

This important edited volume looks at the history and theories of trigger warnings, the ethics of using them, and presents case studies from instructors and students describing instances when trigger warnings were and were not used. By exploring the issue through several scholarly lenses as well as providing examples of when trigger warnings are used effectively and when they are not, Trigger Warnings provides rigorous analysis of the controversy.

The rapid expansion of mobile technology has had a profound impact on many different sectors, industries, and institutions, among those that have been affected are libraries. With more users expecting access to information and resources in a mobile optimized format, libraries have had to adapt to meet the needs of users. This has entailed evaluating various library services and resources to determine how to best meet the needs of mobile users. Additionally, mobile technology has changed the way that websites are designed, and has led to an increasing popular type of web design know as responsive web design (RWD). This enables web developers to design websites with one code base that are optimized for a wide range of devices from desktop computers to smartphones. Libraries must keep their mobile services current or risk becoming obsolete.

DIGITIZING FLAT MEDIA

Principles and Practices By Joy M. Perrin

“Her book is written for people at all levels of experience with digitization who are, or will be, in the process of digitizing flat media such as books, maps, slides, papers, posters, micro formats, etc. This is evident in Perrin’s writing style, which veers away from overly technical jargon, preferring simpler language. The book is designed to help readers discover the best possible options when considering a digitization project. Also, because most largescale digitization endeavors are linked to grants or donors, the book can be used to help staff have a realistic vision of the costs and length of a project when writing grant proposals. . . . Anyone involved in ongoing digitization projects will find this book useful.” —Technical Services Quarterly Here is a concise guide to the nuts and bolts of converting flat media (books, papers, maps, posters, slides, micro formats, etc) into digital files. It provides librarians and archivists with the practical knowledge to understand the process and decision making in the digitization of flat media. Instead of having to learn by trial and error, they will get a well-rounded education of the practical aspects of digitization and have a better understanding of their options. Joy M.

Despite its limited focus on public libraries and less on academic or special collections, this would be an excellent addition to any public services librarian’s bookshelf.”—Library Journal “While descriptions of the various tools are informative and useful, the most inspiring parts of the book are the descriptions of how the technologies are already being put to use by libraries. . . . Written with librarians and library school students in mind as the primary audience, this book is a fairly quick read while at the same time covering several technologies in a thoughtful and engaging manner. For those reading the print version, viewing the video interviews on the companion website is highly recommended.” —Technical Services Quarterly Here’s a one-stop snapshot of emerging technologies every librarian should know about and examples that illustrate how the technologies are being used in libraries today! The e-book includes videos of interviews with librarians that are using them. The videos are available on a web site for people who purchase the print book.

USING TABLETS AND APPS IN LIBRARIES By Elizabeth Willse

Over 52 million tablet devices were sold during the fourth quarter of 2012 and sales are predicted to continue to increase in years to come. These lightweight mobile computing devices are quickly becoming an integral part of patrons’ everyday lives. Libraries are responding by incorporating them into their programs and services. Using Tablets and App in Libraries outlines how libraries can support this new BYOD (bring your own device) culture including offering app events and instruction, installing mounted tablets within the library, offering tablet lending programs, initiating tablet training programs for staff, and ways to evaluate and use quality apps. Elizabeth Willse is a freelance writer with over a decade of experience, her writing has appeared in publications such as the Newark Star-Ledger, Women’s Health Magazine, ChelseaNow and numerous web outlets. 2016 • 156 pages 978-1-4422-4390-3 • $45.00 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-4389-7 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-4391-0 • $44.99 / £29.95 • eBook

MOBILE SOCIAL MARKETING IN LIBRARIES By Samantha C. Helmick

“The seven chapters cover an introduction to mobile social marketing; getting started; tools and applications; library examples and case studies; step-by-step library projects; tips and tricks; and future trends. I think it’s fair to say that although this appears to be aimed more at novice social media users than experienced users, the latter will certainly pick up some ideas and fresh ways of looking at ways of working. . . . It’s difficult to choose a chapter which is the most interesting; certainly the ‘Tips and Tricks” chapter has some useful titbits, such as using photos, animated graphics and videos to ‘intrigue and inspire’.” —Multimedia Information & Technology Samantha Helmick is a user experience and outreach pundit committed to libraries in their endeavors to adapt tech trends, facilitate resources and invigorate staff who serve users where they exist throughout the community. 2015 • 126 pages 978-1-4422-4381-1 • $45.00 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-4380-4 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-4382-8 • $44.99 / £29.95 • eBook

EMERGING TRENDS IN ARCHIVAL SCIENCE

ARCHIVAL ARRANGEMENT AND DESCRIPTION Analog to Digital

By Karen F. Gracy

By Lois Hamill

Archival Arrangement and Description teaches the core functions of arrangement. A historical summary grounds new archivists to assess proposed change for digital files. After presenting the basics of arrangement and description (processing) for analog materials, the text segues to digital materials incorporating the OAIS preservation model into a detailed, sample workflow. Although accessioning and technical appraisal precede processing, they are discussed because they are performed differently for digital materials and create a different starting point for processing digital files. Description is external to the OAIS model but linked to it. Recent advances in description and its delivery are presented along with concerns for the ability of smaller archives to participate in envisioned future developments that are technology reliant. New specialties like digital curation and data curation show the continued relevance of archival expertise for the digital future. Lois Hamill is the university archivist and an associate professor at Northern Kentucky University’s Steely Library. Her last book, Archives for the Lay Person, was well received, winning a 2013 Kentucky History Award.

As most works addressing archival science are either domain-specific journals or scholarly publications about best practices, there is a deficit in available resources for those looking to incorporate new global understandings into the archives field. Emerging Trends in Archival Science takes the first step to addressing that gap by providing readers with an excellent overview of the variety and scope of current scholarly thinking in archival science. The field of archival science has broadened considerably in recent years, and now embraces a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. This book will make innovative theory and research about archives and recordkeeping more accessible to scholars, educators, and practitioners in the archival community. Divided into four main sections, the included essays address topics across cultural and ethnic borders affecting the contemporary archives field. • • • •

“This newly-revised edition of The Care of Prints and Drawings remains replete with essential information about how to preserve works on paper, but also reflects today’s prevailing focus on preventive care in the field of conservation. Filled with practical strategies, specific and detailed information, as well as fascinating details about the nature of paper-based artwork and artifacts, the knowledge and experience shared in this volume are indispensible to anyone involved in its care. ” —Pamela Hatchfield, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; president, American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works and the FAIC The 2nd edition of The Care of Prints and Drawings provides practical, straightforward advice to those responsible for the preservation of works on paper, ranging from curators, facility managers, conservators, registrars, collection care specialists, private collectors, artists, or students of museum studies, visual arts, art history, or conservation. A greater emphasis is placed on preventive conservation, a trend among collecting institutions, which reflects the growing recognition that scarce resources are best expended on preventing deterioration, rather than on less effective measures of reversing it.

The editors and contributors have produced a cutting-edge, wellinformed volume that is highly recommended to anyone involved in keeping archives or records.” —Booklist “This book is an excellent resource. The preface defines the book’s target audience as ‘present and aspiring records, archival, and other information professionals and scholars’, and it will certainly be useful to all of these groups. The concise explanations will serve new records professionals as they come to grips with key terms and concepts, and more established practitioners will benefit from the inclusion of entries for more recent concepts. . . .

“It is worth praising Theimer for her structured approach to the case studies that ensures all authors reflect on successes and lessons learned. This is exactly the right approach and enables the reader to develop an understanding of the skills, methods and tools that each case study adopts. . . .Any information professional or related educator will do well to read this book and to reflect on the stimulating practices, as well as the wonderful innovation and creativity demonstrated by the case studies.” —Archives and Records: The Journal of the Archives and Records Association

“This book opens a new world for archivists, one that was always there but which few of us could ever see through the fog of our focus on the more technical issues in the field. This book is a call to action, a roadmap, and an avuncular advisor all at once. Donors and Archives codifies something core to the archival enterprise yet one treated with something worse than disdain—with neglect borne out of our certainty there was just too little there to consider. Now, our consideration can begin, and we can thank Aaron Purcell for getting us started.” —The American Archivist

DIGITAL PRESERVATION FOR FUTURE-PROOFING THE NEWS the First Draft of LIBRARIES, ARCHIVES, AND MUSEUMS Preserving History Second Edition

“Corrado and Moulaison Sandy’s work on digital preservation sheds new light on how to create and sustain a digital preservation program. Focusing on the inter-connected areas of management, technology and content the ‘digital preservation triad’ provides libraries, archives and museums with an useful model for approaching just about any type of digital preservation issue.” —Erik Mitchell, associate university librarian, director of digital initiatives and collaborative services, University of California, Berkeley This new edition of Digital Preservation in Libraries, Archives, and Museums is the most current, complete guide to digital preservation available today. For administrators and practitioners alike, the information in this book is presented readably, focusing on management issues and best practices. Although this book addresses technology, it is not solely focused on technology. After all, technology changes and digital preservation is aimed for the long term. This is not a how-to book giving stepby-step processes for certain materials in a given kind of system. Instead, it addresses a broad group of resources that could be housed in any number of digital preservation systems. Finally, this book is about “things (not technology; not how-to; not theory) I wish I knew before I got started.” Edward M. Corrado is associate dean, library technology planning and policy at the University of Alabama. Heather Moulaison Sandy is assistant professor at the iSchool at the University of Missouri.

“Hansen and Paul have written an accessible and informative text on the preservation of primary source material from the analog and digital eras. . . . this volume centers on descriptions about the preservation process along with the inherent challenges, past and future. VERDICT This would be a helpful resource for librarians, archivists, administrators, and anyone who wants to learn more about how the materials of today will be available for researchers of tomorrow.” —Library Journal, Starred Review News coverage is often described as the “first draft of history.” From the publication in 1690 of the first American newspaper, Publick Occurrences, to the latest tweet, news has been disseminated to inform its audience about what is going on in the world. But the preservation of news content has had its technological, legal, and organizational challenges. Over the centuries, as new means of finding, producing, and distributing news were developed, the methods used to ensure future generations’ access changed, and new challenges for news content preservation arose. This book covers the history of news preservation (or lack thereof), the decisions that helped ensure (or doom) its preservation, and the unique preservation issues that each new form of media brought. Kathleen A. Hansen is professor of journalism and mass communication at the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities. Nora Paul is director of the Minnesota Journalism Center in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota.

INFORMATION AND INNOVATION

A Natural Combination for Health Sciences Libraries Edited by Jean P. Shipman and Barbara A. Ulmer

“Those responsible for health sciences libraries should find inspiration —and practical advice—in Information and Innovation: A Natural Combination for Health Sciences Libraries. Expanding the ways in which librarians and libraries create, promote, and support health science innovation will increase the value of existing investments in organizing and providing access to data, information, and knowledge to fuel discovery.” —Betsy L. Humphreys, Medical Library Association 2007 Marcia C. Noyes Awardee As academic health sciences centers look toward innovative product development as their new income source with the decline of clinical income and research dollars, health sciences librarians and libraries can partner with these revenue-generating innovators to offer invaluable services, evidence, training, dissemination venues and attractive collaborative physical spaces equipped with the latest tools, such as 3-D printers, body scanners, models and video-monitors. This book uses case examples, including perspectives from both librarians and innovators, to illustrate how various health sciences libraries have partnered with innovators by offering valuable services and creative products and spaces—especially innovators who create medical digital therapeutics devices and apps. Jean P. Shipman is executive director, Knowledge Management and Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library; director of the MidContinental Region and National Training Office of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine; and director for information transfer, Center for Medical Innovation.

TRANSLATING EXPERTISE

The Librarian’s Role in Translational Research Edited by Marisa L. Conte

The highlight of the book are case studies by librarians from CTSA Consortium institutions. These case studies, including successes, challenges, and lessons learned, will detail specific routes to librarian involvement in translational research, including collection development, creating and maintaining relationships with researchers and administrators, instruction and training, data management, team science and more. The variety of case studies, including challenges and lessons learned, will help libraries that are looking for ways to engage the translational research audiences at their institutions, or those who currently work with CTS but face new challenges due to declining federal research funds, shifting institutional priorities, or other factors.

Partnering for Success Edited by Mary E. Edwards

In 2005, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program—an institution-based grant intended to re-engineer the clinical research enterprise, speeding the time from pre-clinical discovery to the development of therapies to improve human health. As universities competed for CTSA funding and often struggled to develop or recalibrate institutional infrastructures and research support services, the face of pre-clinical and clinical research changed dramatically. This book demystifies translational research by providing a comprehensive historical background and context on the CTSA program, including the impact of funding reductions and administrative changes.

INTERPROFESSIONAL EDUCATION AND MEDICAL LIBRARIES “Interprofessional Education and Medical Libraries is an excellent primer for faculty, administrators, and librarians considering implementing IPE or expanding their IPE offerings. I believe it also provides a valued refresher for experienced IPE practitioners. The chapter on organizational change is particularly useful because implementing IPE can prove to be quite challenging for institutions.The case studies offer practical examples that could serve as models for other institutions” —David A. Nolfi, health sciences librarian and library assessment coordinator, Gumberg Library, Duquesne University Interprofessional Education and Medical Libraries from the prestigious Medical Library Association provides a brief introduction to IPE and features descriptions of how librarians are involved with IPE at their institutions, paying particular attention to librarians’ roles in the planning, design, development, and evaluation of their institutions’ IPE programs. While several chapters focus on the role of the medical librarian in IPE programs, to broaden the potential audience and impact, the book includes other perspectives of IPE. Highlights include content on topics ranging from foundational concepts (history of IPE programs, theoretical and pedagogical foundations of IPE, accreditation, assessment) to case studies from high profile IPE programs and specific examples from practice. IPE programs in both didactic (non-clinical) and the clinical setting are included. Mary E.

Literary Research and British Postmodernism is a guide for scholars that aims to connect the complex relationships between print and multimedia, technological advancements, and the influence of critical theory that converge in postwar British literature. This era is unique in that strict boundaries between fiction, nonfiction, multimedia and print are not useful. Postmodern literature is defined by the breaking down of boundaries as a reaction to modernism and requires an innovative, multifaceted approach to research. In this guide the authors explore these complex relationships and offer strategies for researching this new period of literature. Arianne A.

TECHNOLOGY AND THE SCHOOL LIBRARY

REACHING RELUCTANT YOUNG READERS

Third Edition

By Odin L. Jurkowski

Technology is an integral and critical component of every day of every school librarian’s work. Here’s a comprehensive overview of the types of technologies used in school libraries, from traditional low-tech options to the latest developments, describing how the school librarian interacts with and works with the technology. This thoroughly revised and updated third edition addresses the continuously changing nature of technology, including new information on 1:1 initiatives, Chromebooks, mobile devices, and current trends in technology integration throughout schools. Major topics covered in this volume include information resources in the school library, the different varieties of educational software available, resources available via the web, and the importance of creating a web presence. This book also addresses tools that can be used in classrooms and technology administration: everything from automation and filters to security on student computers and security systems in general.

“Finally help is here for reluctant readers! Reid clearly understands how to get all types of readers excited about books, but his skill at guiding skeptical readers to just the right books is remarkable. This volume is everything teachers and librarians need, including 150 high-interest titles by specific genre and specific ways to pitch the books, to help the most reluctant readers find joy in reading. ” —Pat R. Scales, author of Defending Frequently Challenged Young Adult Books: A Handbook for Librarians and Educators Reaching Reluctant Young Readers features 150 middle-grade books. Each profiled title has the potential to hook the reluctant reader and lure them to read the entire book. To specifically encourage elementary and middleschool-age reluctant children to read, there is first a pitch to get the reader’s attention. That is followed by a short reading passage to “set the hook” and encourage the young person to read the rest of the book on their own. Further, the book contains several hundred additional recommended titles.

Odin Jurkowski is a tenured full professor at the University of Central Missouri where he teaches in the educational technology program and is the associate dean for graduate studies in the College of Education.

YOUNG ADULT LITERATURE, LIBRARIES, AND CONSERVATIVE ACTIVISM By Loretta M. Gaffney

“Gaffney’s new book is substantive contribution to the scholarship of Young Adult literature, acting as an overview of not only Young Adult literature but of Young Adult library services. Her synthesis of the underlying issues that affect both the aesthetics of the literature as well as the practicalities of service takes a cohesive approach that makes this an exceptional choice for a classroom text as well as solid grounding for further research. ” —Janice M. Del Negro, associate professor, GSLIS/Dominican University This incisive study analyzes young adult (YA) literature as a cultural phenomenon, explaining why this explosion of books written for and marketed to teen readers has important consequences for how we understand reading in America. As visible and volatile shorthand for competing views of teen reading, YA literature has become a lightning rod for a variety of aesthetic, pedagogical, and popular literature controversies. Noted scholar Loretta Gaffney not only examines how YA literature is defended and critiqued within the context of rapid cultural and technological changes, but also highlights how struggles about teen reading matter to—and matter in—the future of librarianship and education. Loretta M. Gaffney has taught courses on intellectual freedom, reading research, young adult literature, and youth services librarianship for nearly a decade. A former middle school librarian at the University of Chicago Lab Schools, she defended her dissertation, “Intellectual Freedom and the Politics of Reading” in 2012.

DOCUMENTS THAT CHANGED THE WAY WE LIVE

ANNUAL REVIEW OF CULTURAL HERITAGE INFORMATICS Edited by Jennifer Weil Arns

Documents that Changed the Way We Live looks at fifty compelling stories, each of which describes a document, its creation and motivation, influence, importance, historical and social context, its provenance and how it got to where it is now (if still extant), and connections to contemporary information objects, technologies, and trends. These are also milestones and markers of human activity, part of who and what we are. Our story can be told through the objects, profound and trivial, famous and forgotten, by which we remember and are remembered.

CONVERSATIONS WITH THE WORLD’S LEADING ORCHESTRA AND OPERA LIBRARIANS By Patrick Lo

THE BAYEUX TAPESTRY

A Critically Annotated Bibliography By John F. Szabo and Nicholas E. Kuefler

This book is based on a series of informative interviews with a number of music librarians working for different leading symphony orchestras and opera companies throughout the world. In these interviews, librarians share with the readers what kind of professional skills, knowledge and personality that are required to supply music to the performers onstage, as well as information to these world-famous performing arts organizations.

“Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty.” —CHOICE “In entry 1163 the editors quote Miles’s paraphrase of the director of the British Museum ‘anybody who is anybody in Tapestry studies gathered in the British Museum in 2008, largely to contradict each other’. If that describes you, or your library customer, then you will need a copy of this book. For social and military historians, arts and textile specialists and others not so deeply interested in tapestry studies will find this bibliography a good entree to a diverse and scatted literature on the middle ages.”—Reference Reviews John F.

LIBRARIES, HUMAN RIGHTS, AND SOCIAL JUSTICE

SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATIONS

By Paul T. Jaeger, Natalie Greene Taylor and Ursula Gorham

By John J. Regazzi

Enabling Access and Promoting Inclusion

A History from Content as King to Content as Kingmaker “Scholarly Communications provides a valuable historical examination of these tensions and contends that they can be resolved with more open access to information in the end. An extensive bibliography and index add value. . . .This book is best suited for academic libraries, although special libraries that are focused on scientific, technical, or medical research should also consider it.” —Technical Services Quarterly

“Overall, this book is an excellent piece of work. Thoroughly researched, it builds a strong case for libraries as social justice institutions supported by a wide range of statistics, evidence, and examples. . . . [It] paint[s] a compelling picture of libraries that could indeed become a rallying cry for professionals. The book would be a great addition to any LIS course with a focus on inclusion, social justice, outreach, or advocacy, or could be a supplemental text in a foundational course to provide a view of the potential for the profession to engage in social issues.” —Library & Information Science Research “Libraries, Human Rights, and Social Justice encourages librarians to pursue an advocacy role. The authors suggest that we fully recognize our efforts in this area and make them a stronger part of our profession, including providing training in library school, our professional associations, and daily work. If we join more closely with the contemporary movements for human rights and social justice, we may gain new allies and partners as well as help our users. This book provides a wide-ranging, research-based view of how these issues are important to libraries.”—Information Today

U.S. INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITIONS DURING THE COLD WAR Winning Hearts and Minds through Cultural Diplomacy By Andrew James Wulf

Although cultural diplomacy has become an increasingly fashionable term embraced by academics, foreign-service personnel, and private sector commercial and cultural interests, the very practice of this idea remains conspicuously challenging to define. This book takes on this problem, advancing a new understanding of cultural diplomacy that results from a historical investigation of a single area of government and private sector partnership, and what became in the mid-twentieth century the most prominent manifestation of this alliance—the cultural exhibitions sent abroad to “tell America’s story” with the goal of “winning hearts and minds.”

CASE STUDIES IN CULTURAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP

How to Create Relevant and Sustainable Institutions Edited by Gretchen Sullivan Sorin and Lynne A. Sessions

“Sorin and Sessions have masterfully unveiled several case studies that illuminate the stories of institutional leaders who had the courage and tenacity to interpret external pressures and opportunities anew, to exercise adept flexibility, and to persevere with patience and humility in order to create something remarkable and refreshingly different. These stories will aid and inspire trustees and leaders to step back to reframe their reality, to ask different questions, and to explore new models that reflect more robust ways of being with their public. This collection is a welcome addition to the literature and the ongoing conversation of relevancy and sustainability in our institutions and museums.”—AASLH History News Gretchen Sullivan Sorin is director and distinguished professor at the Cooperstown Graduate Program, a museum studies program dedicated to the museum as a public service institution that must be entrepreneurial. Lynne Sessions’ career combines extensive experience in higher education with training and development and public relations experience in the not-forprofit sector.

An Introduction

An Introduction

By Lois Mai Chan and Athena Salaba

“Finally, sometimes a soup-to-nuts textbook is needed to gather current thinking on an issue of professional practice and to get pointers on where to go for deeper knowledge. Edited by Sandra Hirsh, Information Services Today: An Introduction serves this purpose well, with 39 essays by library leaders grouped into broad areas.”—American Libraries “This textbook appeals to a diverse audience. It is a foundational instructional resource for information science students and lecturers, an excellent refresher on the current state of the information professions for practitioners, and a solid introduction to the information professions for general readers who want to better understand information work.” —Information Management This essential overview of what it means to be a library and information professional today provides a broad overview of the transformation of libraries as information organizations, why these organizations are more important today than ever before, the technological influence on how we provide information resources and services in today’s digital and global environment, and the various career opportunities available for information professionals.

“[T]he book is a great resource and collects a lot of cataloging information that is otherwise dispersed. It would be a valuable resource to a new cataloger or any cataloger needing help interpreting RDA. It is a text for catalogers in any type of library and for any type of material (including nontraditional materials). It should be found in every library school library as a reference resource.”—Technical Services Quarterly The fourth edition of the late Lois Mai Chan’s classic Cataloging and Classification covers the analysis and representation of methods used in describing, organizing, and providing access to resources made available in or through libraries. Since the last edition published in 2007, there have been dramatic changes in cataloging systems from the Library of Congress. The most notable being the shift from AACR2 to Resource Description and Access (RDA) as the new standard developed by the Library of Congress. With the help of the coauthor, Athena Salaba, this text is modified throughout to conform to the new standard.

Sandra Hirsh is professor and director of the School of Information at San José State University.

Athena Salaba is associate professor in the School of Library and Information Science at Kent State University. The late Lois Mai Chan was formerly professor emerita in the School of Library and Information Science at the University of Kentucky, Lexington.
