By placing its professional expertise in the service of maintaining the democratic values of free expression and pluralism, American librarianship not only defended its professional autonomy in the area of book selection, but also developed an ideology of intellectual freedom and claimed its defense as a central jurisdiction. Through extensive use of primary source material, this volume charts the library profession's journey from the adoption of the 1939 Library's Bill of Rights to the 1969 development of the Freedom to Read Foundation. The book argues that the ALA was reluctant to fund support for intellectual freedom, and that the ALA's executive board was extremely cautious and seldom took leadership in intellectual freedom matters.

Economic constraints, curriculum changes, growing student numbers and the information explosion resulting from technological developments have put a higher priority on the successful management of increasingly diverse library collections. This new edition of Collection Management in Academic Libraries, written by senior university librarians and expert commentators from both the UK and North America, provides an enlightening overview of collection management policy and practice in academic libraries today.Though recognizing the continuing importance of traditional printed holdings, the book highlights the central role now played in academic libraries by electronic information. It explores possible scenarios for the future and discusses the management of access to remote sources of information, and issues relating to infrastructure support. New chapters are included on the management of electronic information, learning support, document delivery strategies, preservation and disaster planning, and collection management for the twenty-first century. The chapters on organization of collection management, finance and budgeting, performance measurement, serials management, stock retention and relegation have been revised in the light of recent changes in collection priorities and user demand.Collection Management in Academic Libraries is chiefly aimed at library managers and students of library and information science. Those responsible for acquisitions, reader services and serials management will also find that lessons from the experience and research described in the book will help to equip them better for the challenges in their own institutions.

Academic libraries have continually looked for technological solutions to low circulation statistics, under-usage by students and faculty, and what is perceived as a crisis in relevance, seeing themselves in competition with Google and Wikipedia. Academic libraries, however, are as relevant as they have been historically, as their primary functions within their university missions have not changed, but merely evolved. Going beyond the Gate Count argues that the problem is not relevance, but marketing and articulation. This book offers theoretical reasoning and practical advice to directors on how to better market the function of the library within and beyond the home institution. The aim of this text is to help directors, and ultimately, their librarians and staff get students and faculty back into the library, as a result of better articulation of the library’s importance. The first chapter explores the promotion of academic libraries and their function as educational systems. The next two chapters focus on the importance of the role social media and virtual presence in the academic library, and engaging and encouraging students to use the library through a variety of methods, such as visually oriented special collections. Remaining chapters discuss collaboration and collegiality, formalized reporting and marketing. Offers clear, concise writing, with thoughtful discussions of the problems facing academic libraries Demonstrates comprehensive and thoughtful research that informs theoretical approaches to realistic outcomes that address these problems Provides helpful tables, illustrations, and photographs that evidence the collaborative nature of contemporary academic libraries Provides practical examples from actual experiences that can be adapted by readers

Despite calls for electronic, virtual, digital libraries without walls, the walled variety are still being built, some of them massive. This book explores the reasons for this contradiction by examining several notable new library facilities around the world to see how modern expectations for libraries are being translated into concrete and steel. More and more libraries are looking at change not as a dreaded hazard but as an opportunity that can itself be seized to strengthen the library in the areas of mission, technologies, facilities, funding, and organizational structure. Thirteen libraries are discussed--by a librarian or administrator who worked on the project. Each author writes about the design and building concerns that were particularly relevant to that library: philosophy, political issues, or any other concerns that affected planning, building, and services in the new facility. Introductory and concluding chapters identify underlying values and themes, tying everything together. The unique combinations of issues, constraints, and opportunities show how libraries are planning to fit into the approaching era of virtual information delivery.
