Abstract:Academic libraries operating in conflict zones especially in Palestine and neighboring countries are involved in transitioning from traditional models to improve their libraries’ services and satisfy patron demand. The researcher reviewed the latest trends, the library and information science (LIS) literature in academic librarianship, and identified three trends to enhance their customer service component. The critical analysis emphasized building a model that focused on creating a comfortable and collaborative place for library patrons to satisfy their information needs. Local authority, political, economic, and cultural knowledge will enable selected trends to be embraced by librarians in conflict zones, and minimize their unintended negative consequences.
