Academic Branch Libraries in Changing Times
Are academic branch libraries going to be extinct in the near future? In these difficult economic times, when collections are digitized rapidly, is there still a need for a separate unit within proximity to the department, school, or college with a subject-based or subject-specific collection? This book gives a brief historical overview of the role of a branch academic library. It reviews the current situation from a practitioner's point of view and suggests solutions for the future.
