Library Trends 58 (3) Winter 2010: Current Trends in Academic Media Collections and Services. Edited by Ciara Healy

This issue of Library Trends was proposed as an update to the last media issue in 1985, on the presumption that much has changed with regard to academic media collections and services in the last twenty-five years. While it is certainly true that media collections, creation, access, and distribution in academic libraries has changed radically, it is interesting to note how much things have stayed the same. Many of the pieces in this issue deal directly with major topics from the 1967 and 1971 issues, especially copyright, rapid format change, access to media, and the role of media centers in academic libraries. Each one also contributes, in its own way, to the larger questions and conversations found in the 1985 issue regarding the status of nonprint media collections in academic libraries. To be more precise, this issue, then, is in fact an update of the earlier issues and a reconsideration of much that was contained in the 1985 issue.


Library Trends (ISSN 0024-2594) is an essential tool for librarians and educators alike. Each issue thoroughly explores a current topic of interest in professional librarianship and includes practical applications, thorough analyses, and literature reviews. The journal is published quarterly for the Graduate School of Library and Information Science by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
