Appeared in Library Journal on 1995-04-01:
This year seems an appropriate time to document the voluminous literature on college and university libraries published in the first third of the decade. Karp (Clarion Univ.) offers a useful annotated bibliography covering books, articles, ERIC documents, dissertations, and related materials published between 1990 and 1993. Its 1,662 citations are divided into six sections: academic libraries as a whole, administrators and administrative concerns, access services, technical services, and the future and role of academic libraries and librarians. Author, article title, book/journal title, and subject indexes provide access to related citations throughout the work. Obviously, such bibliographies become dated very quickly, but this one is invaluable, serving as a handy, single-volume guide to recent literature. Library/information science educators, students, and practicing librarians will find it useful for research purposes. Recommended to all academic libraries.‘Stephen L. Hupp, Capital Univ.

Summaries
Long Description
The end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s have been a time of great change for academic libraries and librarians. Rapid developments in technology have revolutionized the libraries' means and mission, while declining budgets have adversely impacted the ability of librarians to carry out their roles. The literature of academic librarianship today reflects these changes and points to the direction in which academic libraries are headed. This book is a comprehensive guide to book chapters and articles written on academic librarianship between 1990 and 1993. Entries for nearly 1,700 works are grouped in six topical chapters for ease of use. Each entry includes an informative annotation that summarizes the key points made by the authors, the major findings of research projects, and the names and locations of libraries with innovative programs. Extensive author, article, book/journal title, and subject indexes conclude the work. The volume is a useful tool for locating specific information on various topics, and it is a forecast of the future of academic libraries.
