The Changing Role of Academic Law Librarianship is an authoritative, insider's perspective on key strategies for understanding and navigating the current trends in law school librarianship. Featuring library directors and managers representing some of the nation's top law schools, these experts guide the reader through the history of law school librarianship and outline major elements of the librarian's role today, including monitoring budgets, allocating resources, harnessing new technologies, and enhancing research education. These top librarians give tips on addressing some of the challenges inherent in a changing landscape, such as improving interlibrary loan services, cultivating modern pedagogy, and evaluating titles and volume counts. Additionally, these leaders give tips on stimulating student legal research skills, digitizing rare materials in collections, marketing, and communicating services, and maximizing the librarian's managerial role. The different niches represented and the breadth of perspectives presented enable readers to get inside the minds of some of the leading information managers of today, as these experienced law school librarians offer up their thoughts around the keys to navigating an ever-evolving profession.
Inside the Minds provides readers with proven business intelligence from C-Level executives (Chairman, CEO, CFO, CMO, Partner) from the world's most respected companies nationwide, rather than third-party accounts from unknown authors and analysts. Each chapter is comparable to an essay/thought leadership piece and is a future-oriented look at where an industry, profession, or topic is headed and the most important issues for the future. Through an exhaustive selection process, each author was hand-picked by the Inside the Minds editorial board to author a chapter for this book.
