In this newly revised and expanded third edition, The Changing Academic Library: Operations, Culture, Environments, number 74 in ACRL's Publications in Librarianship series, presents a critical examination of major issues facing colleges and universities and the unique challenges their libraries face. In twelve chapters--including a completely new second chapter on the state of higher education--the book presents an overview of higher education and the role of libraries within the institution, covering academic models from private colleges to public universities; discusses governance models, financing, and organizational culture, and the library's place within them; examines changes in scholarly communication; looks at the impact of the library on its community; and explores issues affecting library collections, access, services, and staffing. –Summary provided by the publisher
