Technology-Centered Academic Library Partnerships and Collaborations

Book Description

In order to meet the needs of a changing and demanding society, many academic institutions face great competition for highly coveted, yet dwindling, resources. Traditionally, libraries were a centralized focus on any campus; however, these facilities are now facing budget cuts and decreased resources, forcing them to seek out the necessary partnerships to obtain the support needed to continue to provide services to students and staff. Technology-Centered Academic Library Partnerships and Collaborations examines cooperation efforts employed by librarians, allowing them to provide more services and resources to their patrons with an emphasis on the digital tools and resources being used in such collaborations. Featuring research on various types of partnerships and institutional relationships, as well as the overall benefits of these collaborations, this publication is an essential reference source for librarians, researchers, academic administrators, advanced-level students, and information technology professionals.
