Title:Keeping Up with the Joneses: New Models to Support Developing Needs
Author(s):Hill, Terry B.
Subject(s):Academic Libraries
Interdisciplinary Collections
Academic librarianship
Librarian-faculty interaction
Abstract:The purpose of this paper is to explore models that may improve interdisciplinary collection strategies. Practical alternatives and expansions to existing services that can be explored without the burden of irreversible consequences will be discussed. This paper is intended more so as a conversation starter about altering our thought processes in regards to how librarians carry out their work to meet new demands. It is not intended to be a guide with proven methods that will work universally. These proposals are set within the context of a library that is part of a large research institution.
