Summary: This book starts from the premise that the last decade has brought more changes for the academic research library than any ever previously known. The book provides an authoritative overview and analysis of the issues and challenges affecting academic research libraries from the closing years of the 20th century onwards. While the focus on this period of 'white water' change is primarily British, with a number of 'case studies' based on the transformative initiatives of the UK's Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and its seminal Electronic Libraries Programme (eLib), as well as on the Bodleian Library's far-reaching responses to the complex demands of the digital age, the issues themselves are presented in their global context, with implications drawn for research libraries everywhere. Key Features: Written by one of the world's leading academic research librarians. Provides a comprehensive overview of the factors at work in an exceptionally significant and fast-moving decade of research library development. Contains personal insights into many of the key library and information initiatives of recent years. Provides full notes and references, to enable further reading.
