Overview

Open Access and its Practical Impact on the Work of Academic Librarians: Collection Development, Public Services, and the Library and Information Science Literature by Laura Bowering Mullen

This book is aimed at the practicing academic librarian, especially those working on the ‘front lines’ of reference, instruction, collection development, and other capacities that involve dealing directly with library patrons in a time of changing scholarly communication paradigms. The book looks at open access from the perspective of a practicing academic librarian and challenges fellow librarians to continue the dialogue about how the movement might be affecting day-to-day library work and the future of academic libraries.

  • Written by a practicing academic librarian with many years experience in reference, as well as in collection development and faculty liaison roles
  • Written with the “front-line” academic librarian in mind from a practical point of view
  • Contains numerous references to refer the reader to many open access resources; includes extensive footnotes for further reading
