Library Trends 39 (4) Spring 1991: Off-Campus Library Programs in Higher Education


Library Trends 39 (4) Spring 1991: Off-Campus Library Programs in Higher Education. Edited by William Aguilar and Marie Kascus.

During the last decade, observers of academic trends may have noticed a definite increase in the number of off-campus sites and educational programs across the country. The guiding philosophy in embarking on this special issue of Library Trends is that library service is a critical component of quality education regardless of whether the instruction takes place on campus or off campus. While there is a plethora of activity in off-campus library services, most efforts have been localized, non-systematic, reported outside the traditional library literature, and have not fully capitalized on the international experience in this area. The intention in this issue is to present a state-of-the-art review of the delivery of services and resources to sites located at a distance from the main academic campus, exploring many issues and problems relevant to the delivery of off-campus library services.

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.
