About the Author:

John M. Budd is an associate professor in the School of Information Science and Learning Technologies at the University of Missouri-Columbia is the winner of the 2002 Highsmith Library Literature award (formerly the G.K. Hall Award for Library Literature). He has authored numerous publications and articles in professional and scholarly journals and has given presentations at national and state conferences.

From Booklist:

This new edition of The Changing Academic Library updates and expands the concepts of the original, bringing the content into our current economic climate. This book presents an overview of higher education and the role of libraries within that environment, covering a wide variety of academic models, from private colleges to public universities. It discusses governance models, financing, and organizational culture, in each case identifying the place of the library within that structure. It also covers issues affecting library collections, services, and staffing. This work provides a valuable dose of context for students and anyone else who would like to become an academic librarian. For those of us already serving as academic librarians, it provides a reminder of the issues and pressures that we deal with on a daily basis. --David Tyckoson
