Finding Common Ground

A new library is evolving out of the institutional settings of the past. It is a constantly expanding landscape combining printed text, images, data, photographs, videos, music, ephemera, and artwork available in a dizzying array of formats and access. Yet the mission of the library -- of informing, educating, entertaining, and stimulating thought -- continues very much today as it began. Books in this series are written for practicing librarians: those who daily face the challenges, clashes, opportunities, and pressures of bridging the gap between information and its potential users in the physical and virtual reality that comprises "The New Library". Over 50 articles by top thinkers including Clifford Lynch, Walt Crawford, Margo Crist, James Rettig, and Maureen Sullivan, cover such topics as redefining the future of reference services; government information in the 21st Century; integrating technology and information skills across the curriculum; developing new electronic services; and cataloging digital libraries.
