"Serials Acquisitions in the 21st Century: Scholarly Communication, Life-Long Learning, and Collection Development" is an essential resource for every librarian concerned with collection, development and collaboration in a user-centered and forward-looking library. This is a detailed study of the significance of the electronic resource paradigm that is transforming libraries everywhere - where users primarily use the internet to find information, looking to libraries for free, online, and instant full-text - and the vital information librarians need to learn to rise to the challenges it presents."Serials Acquisitions in the 21st Century: Scholarly Communication, Life-Long Learning, and Collection Development" provides a practical analysis of the challenges and strategies presented to librarians in learning to cope with the profound technological transformation of information services. This comprehensive guidebook includes in-depth discussion of the methods for locating and evaluating quality resources, the history and realities of contemporary scholarly communications, and the meaning and synthesis of information as incrementally constructed knowledge. "Serials Acquisitions in the 21st Century: Scholarly Communication, Life-Long Learning, and Collection Development" will be indispensable for librarians who are learning to cope with the increasingly demanding and technologically-savvy users and limited budgets that must be balanced in order to provide a high quality of service for patrons of all kinds.
