It reviews the current situation from a practitioner’s point of view and suggests solutions for the future. Provides practical and realistic solutions to academic libraries that they can execute in their daily operating cycle Covers a variety of issues from staffing and public services, through to collections and bibliographic instruction Presents a clear analysis of the current situation and suggestions for the future
