    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

    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.

  • Active Learning Techniques for Librarians

    By Andrew Walsh

    Our Price: $80.00

    • ISBN-13: 9781843345923
    • Publisher: Amer Library Assn
    • Published: September 2010
    Active learning requires the listener to think, question and interact with the material being presented. The majority of this text consists of possible active learning activities, each about a page long and containing the following sections: uses, materials required, notes, how to use it, variations and pitfalls. It finishes with templates for constructing lesson plans with ten examples. Walsh (librarian, U. of Huddersfield) and Inala (librarian, Manchester Metropolitan U.) present a practical handbook that also incorporates use of mobile phone technologies and web 2.0 functions. While this book doesn't note the level of student for which the instructional techniques are designed, they seem most appropriate for middle through high school classes. The brief section on classification schemes only presents examples in the Dewey Decimal System. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

    In the first update since 1983 of this glossary from the American Library Association (ALA), over 600 definitions are updated along with the addition of almost 1,400 new terms. Most of these relate to the ever present changes in computer technology which required the addition of terms related to metadata, electronic resources and electronic workflow. Since new electronic resources have also updated work in all realms, significant changes were also made in the areas of licensing, assessment and reader's advisory. The glossary includes a number of cross references, along with the expansion of ever present acronyms such as OAI-PMH. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
