9780275981945: Higher Education in the Internet Age: Libraries Creating a Strategic Edge (ACE/Praeger Series on Higher Education)

This new work from Breivik and Gee addresses the unique challenges of today's information-overloaded culture while responding to the significant changes that have occurred on campuses during the past fifteen years. Chief among these changes are the pervasive use of the Internet, growing community engagement, distance education, the emphasis on more active learning, and the assessment of student learning outcomes. The work is enriched by a series of key-issue statements about topics that have emerged within today's wired society, and by vignettes highlighting best practices that have been extracted from interviews with leaders in education, business, and government.
Far too often, presidents, academic vice presidents, and other campus leaders fail to take advantage of the contributions their campus libraries can make toward achieving institutional visions and priorities. In this age of information, libraries can and should be one of the primary strategic tools. By highlighting the extensive and successful use some campus leaders have made of library resources and personnel, the authors hope to inspire others to see their libraries strategically.

About the Author:

PATRICIA SENN BREIVIK retired in June 2005 as Dean of the University Library, San Jose State University, where, in collaboration with the San Jose Public Library, a merged library (Silicon Valley's 21st century information hub) was created. Her previous experience included Library Dean at Wayne State University; Associate Vice President for Information Resources at the Towson State University Campus of the University of Maryland; and Director of the Library and professor, University of Colorado, Auraria. Dr. Breivik founded and served as the first chair of the National Forum on Information Literacy. She holds an MLS from Pratt Institute, and a DLS from Columbia University.
E. GORDON GEE is Chancellor of Vanderbilt University. He has served as president of Brown University, The Ohio State University, the University of Colorado, and West Virginia University. Gee holds a joint degree in law and education from Columbia University, and has served as an assistant dean for the University of Utah College of Law, and as Judicial Fellow and Senior Staff Assistant for U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger. He was also a law school administrator at J. Reuben Clark Law School of Brigham Young University.

Review:

Contributes to the literature on the role of libraries in higher education, and it should be particularly useful for library school students and beginning librarians. It also reminds them of the importance of academic librarians as partners with faculty and administrators in learning, research, and community engagement. Far too often, presidents, academic vice presidents and others campus leaders fail to take advantage of the contributions their campus libraries can make toward achieving institutional visions and priorities. In this age of information, libraries can and should be one of the primary strategic tools. By highlighting the extensive and successful use some campus leaders have made of library resources and personnel, the authors hope to inspireothers to see their libraries strategically. Breivik and Gee make a strong case that the library should be made a full partner in the institution's missions of teaching, research, and service, arguing that the benefits the library can bring are undeniable. The authors also decribe additional value an institution can derive from the library's involvement in other areas of the college, such as administration. Finally, they give the reader insight into who the librarians are, where they may fit on the organ (Library & Information Science Research)

The authors also decribe additional value an institution can derive from the library's involvement in other areas of the college, such as administration. Finally, they give the reader insight into who the librarians are, where they may fit on the organizational charts, and the funding challenges and possible solutions that can be pursued. Written by a university president and a college librarian, this text explores strategic use of library resources and personnel. Topics include (for example) improving research productivity, supporting administrative priorities, and finding alternative sources of funding. This fully updated and revised edition of the authors' earlier book, titled Information Literacy: Revolution in the Library (1989), features new material dealing with the challenges of today's information-overloaded culture.
