9781409465652: Business School Libraries in the 21st Century

In a period of change, consolidation and cut-backs as well as rapid technological developments, the business school library is often at the forefront of new initiatives and innovative approaches to delivering and managing information in the most responsive yet cost-effective manner possible. In this unique book a respected group of business library directors from prestigious institutions around the world come together to reflect on the key challenges facing their libraries today, from change management to technology and communications to space. They document the state of the sector during a time of fundamental change, draw on their own local contexts to explore topics and concepts and share their insights into what the future might bring. This book will be essential reading not only for librarians working in business, management or social sciences disciplines but for all professionals managing library and information services.

Review:

'Today's business leaders - current and future - face huge volumes of data, changing information formats and expanding channels of communication networks. With such clients, business school libraries are in the vanguard of institutional thinking, policy and application of technology. This book describes how the world's leading business school librarians are facing up to this challenge and reveals lessons to libraries of all kinds.'Helen Edwards, SKOLKOVO Moscow School of Management, Russia 'This volume deserves wide readership but will be especially useful to academic and special librarians.' --CILIP Update

'Delete 'Business School' from the title of this book and you have what is essentially an invaluable toolkit for 21 century librarianship. The book explores contemporaneous issues of relevance to any library - ' --Libfocus

'A valuable international reflection on today's business library world from highly recognized professionals. I recommend this book to all librarians worldwide facing the exciting challenge of serving the various players of a business academic community.' --Pascale Pajona, INSEAD
