This is the first book-length study of prison libraries to provide a comprehensive overview of their history and to analyze their development in terms of the goals of correctional agencies and the values and traditions of librarianship. The author's introduction points out that in recent years new considerations have made it more difficult to clearly determine the value and purpose of prison libraries with respect to both the inmates who use them and the institutions of which they are a part. A heightened sense of professional consciousness in the library profession, expanded awareness of the uses of libraries, and changes in the laws and politics of criminal justice have all contributed to new ways of thinking about prison libraries, and have made a seemingly once simple matter complex.

Prisoners are in a grey area regarding library services. Prison libraries violate many tenets of librarianship, with the justification of maintaining order. The field is de-professionalized--many positions are filled by persons without degrees in library science, and corrections administrators often write policy for services. Critics cite the need to implement public library service models despite practical difficulties. This book investigates state, national and international policies on prison libraries, reviews literature on the topic and describes partnerships between prisons and public libraries. Results from a national survey and follow-up interviews are included, providing a full narrative of policy outcomes in U.S. prisons.

Local Area Networks in Information Management

Local Area Networks in Information Management Author Harry M. Kibirige

Local Area Networks (LANs) have a high potential for alleviating many of the problems associated with stand-alone microcomputers. Kibirige's issue-oriented study explores microcomputer networking systems with particular emphasis on LANs. Although his analysis emphasizes issues from an information scientist's perspective, readers who want to gain an understanding of LAN technology and its applications should find it useful. "Kibirige . . . adds a unique flavor to his book by discussing the LAN as an information-processing structure--putting more emphasis on the utility of LANs than on the technology. Kibirige argues that the LAN is an information-optimization structure that allows the individual and the organization to get maximum utility from the information services and products available, such as the large external databases, e.g. CompuServe. . . . many of the applications he discusses should be of interest to upper-division library science students."

Information and information systems

Information and information systems Author Michael Keeble Buckland

Michael Buckland offers an examination of information systems that is comparative rather than narrowly technical in approach. With careful attention to different meanings of "information," Buckland examines the nature of retrieval-based information systems such as archives, databases, libraries, and museums, and their relationships to their social context. The introductory material examines difficulties of definition and terminology in relation to information systems. There is a systematic overview of the concepts and processes involved in the provision and use of information systems. Buckland's attention to unusual examples, to how different aspects interact with each other, and to how information systems are influenced by their contents and their context yields interesting insights and conclusions which force reconsideration of common assumptions in information science. This volume, with its subject index and bibliography, provides for students and professionals a valuable and readable introduction to this rapidly expanding field.

"The Alienated Llibrarian" is a thoughtful, thorough analysis of the proletarianization of professional work throughout history. . . . What this book does is to present a penetrating investigation of the problem, draw thoughtful conclusions and suggest coping strategies. "Collection Management" This excellent book should attract a wide audience including professional librarians, library school faculty and students, library administrators, and the consulting community. It is highly recommended. Information Processing & Management Nauratil's] analysis does help us gain an understanding of the issue, just as her concluding chapter on coping, and beyond, may help us address the issue when we are confronted with it. "Wilson Library Bulletin" Perhaps because of the popular stereotype of librarianship as a low-pressure, nonstressful profession, librarians have been largely overlooked in current research on occupational burnout. Yet, like other human service personnel who are in continual contact with the public, more and more librarians are experiencing burnout and consequent alienation in the workplace. This study is the first to provide a comprehensive analysis of the problem as it exists among today's librarians. Nauratil begins with an examination of the burnout phenomenon and the factors that contribute to stress and alienation in the human service professions. She discusses the additional pressures resulting from the dilemmas faced by libraries, including dwindling budgets, theft of library materials, understaffing, and the demand for broader or improved services. The costs associated with burnout--such as reduced productivity, rapid employee turnover, and deterioration of services--are also considered. The author asks whether alienation and burnout are the inevitable consequences of the librarian's job under contemporary conditions, and assesses the possible long-term effects of current developments both within library systems and in the communities and institutions they serve. Finally, she explores various strategies for coping with this type of occupational hazard and for strengthening the library system as a whole. This carefully researched and clearly written work will be a valuable resource for courses or research in librarianship, occupational sociology, personnel management, and related subjects.

The analysis of the management activities and effectiveness of the academic library director in Joanne Euster's The Academic Library Director is a fine companion to Rook's work on motivation. Indeed Euster even identifies several key leadership types that characterize certain library directors. Her analyses of those types, and in particular her witty mottoes for each, are a delight. . . . Euster's work is, though, a serious one that is worth serious attention. It is a solid analytical study of how academic library directors operate and what impact they may have on the operation and effectiveness of a library. . . . Her short concluding chapter on the implications of her study offers some extremely valuable insights for university administrators and faculty, library staff, library educators, professional associations, and even directors. Wilson Library Bulletin Although working within a framework largely predetermined by institutional requirements and standardized procedures, the academic library director confronts opportunities and challenges that offer a wide scope for individual creativity. Joanne Euster's new book analyzes the contribution of the director's personal leadership style and management skills to the successful operation of college, university, or research library. Based on the author's award-winning study of the activities and effectiveness of academic library directors, it is the first full-length examination of the subject.
