Open Access and its Practical Impact on the Work of Academic Librarians
Collection Development, Public Services, and the Library and Information Science LiteratureBy
- Laura Bowering Mullen
This book is aimed at the practicing academic librarian, especially those working on the âfront linesâ of reference, instruction, collection development, and other capacities that involve dealing directly with library patrons in a time of changing scholarly communication paradigms. The book looks at open access from the perspective of a practicing academic librarian and challenges fellow librarians to continue the dialogue about how the movement might be affecting day-to-day library work and the future of academic libraries.
