Book Description:
This book explores some of the roles and challenges that academic libraries face in the 21st century. Developments in certain software programs are examined, particularly as they enable library patrons to access, download, retrieve and import bibliographic records from the databases of academic universities and manage their bibliographies more efficiently and conveniently. The important roles of academic libraries in promoting the use of such bibliographic management software by providing needed facilities and organizing training courses for faculties, students and researchers are also discussed. Furthermore, today’s academic libraries are often forced to enter into a significant number of licensing agreements every year for access to electronic resources. As a result, libraries may find themselves unable to provide the level of intended access to electronic resources in accordance with their goals or mission statement. This book discusses how libraries may become more cognizant of the implications that license agreements have to limit their ability to provide access to their patrons. An overview of current trends, legislation, and litigation related to fair use of intellectual property is also provided as it impacts academic libraries in the United States. Recent developments in fair use issues are explored as well, such as scholarly publishing and library electronic reserves, and examples of initiatives currently being used on campuses to retain, secure, and exercise fair use rights in the twenty-first century are given. Finally, Library of Congress subject headings (LCSH) have been a very important component of bibliographic records for many years. The use of tightly controlled vocabulary to create specific subject headings provides greater precision in subject searches to help direct patrons to the most relevant materials. The authors of this book provide feasible suggestions for future improvements in assignment and usage of LCSH to make them easier to use, understand, and apply.
