    Purcell (special collections, Virginia Tech) examines the changing field of academic archives, what academic archivists do, and the future of their work, for archivists of all levels and experience, other information professionals, library directors, historians, and academics. He explores practical issues of work and the management of programs, with a focus on merged departments in academic libraries, such as a special collections unit. He describes choosing this career, working with other information professionals in an academic library, defining and articulating the vision, connecting the program with the goals of the institution, integrating records management functions, building collections with the help of donors and dealers, presenting unique material to many audiences, determining the best approaches to processing and organizing collections, digital opportunities, and the definition of an academic archivist and the role in the twenty-first century.

  • Academic Library and the Net Gen Student

    Our Price: $50.00
    • Format: Paperback
    • ISBN-13: 9780838909461
    • Published: January 2009
    Gibbons (public services and collection development, U. of Rochester, River Campus Libraries) offers academic librarians in public services, technology, and administration insights into the role of technology in the lives of today's tech-savvy undergraduate students. Following overviews of the academic library's mission and of the Net Generation, individual chapters focus on specific technological genres--online gaming, blogging, social bookmarking--and offer evidence-based observations about how students use these technologies in their social and academic practices. Gibbons suggests ways that this knowledge can be incorporated into the mission of an academic library, utilizing aspects of these technologies to provide value-added services to students by communicating in their preferred means.
