Space and Organizational Considerations in Academic Library Partnerships and Collaborations

Book Description

A vital component of any academic institution, libraries are held to and expected to maintain certain standards. In order to meet these standards and better accommodate the student and faculty body they serve, many libraries are recognizing the benefit of forging relationships with other professional and academic entities. Space and Organizational Considerations in Academic Library Partnerships and Collaborations is a pivotal reference source for the latest scholarly research on and methods for utilizing existing spaces within libraries to facilitate collection development in addition to discussions on how on-campus and off-campus partnerships can assist in this endeavor. Focusing on issues related to faculty and researcher collaborations, collection management, and professional development, this book is ideally designed for administrators, librarians, academicians, MLIS students, and information professionals.
