Library Trends 42 (3) Winter 1994: Library Finance: New Needs, New Models. Edited by Murray S. Martin.

This issue of Library Trends recognizes the many financial changes that are affecting libraries. Not only is financial support for the library dwindling as funding authorities are affected by the general economic depression, there is a widespread feeling that the traditional library is perhaps no longer an appropriate model. Librarians themselves are also realizing that the old rules and paradigms must be rethought in a time of rapidly developing information technology. In this issue we have tried to look at some of the pressing financial concerns of libraries. Some types of expenditures and some types of libraries have received less consideration than others, but the assembled articles have seized on some of the key issues in library budgeting. All have stressed the continuing nature of change and point out some of the ways in which change can be managed.
