Pressestimmen

This book challenges librarians to think differently about familiar aspects of librarianship and encourages them to change traditional ways of doing things...it exemplifies a fresh and creative approach that readers can learn from and adapt to their own work. This book has much to offer, including hope for our profession in a time of uncertainty. Overall, it is a good critique of academic librarianship, with compelling arguments for change, and is a worthwhile contribution to current efforts to revitalize the profession. Reference and User Services Quarterly, Vol. 46, No. 1 (Fall 2006) ...sound and relevant... Australian Library Journal, February 2007 Highly recommended for academic libraries and strongly recommended for public libraries. Public Libraries, March/April 2007 Intended primarily for librarians in academic libraries, this text addresses 'the craft of librarianship.' Librarian Chu acknowledges that information tools and technology are developing at a rapid pace, but focuses on the enduring basic mission of the librarian: to make appropriate resources available, and to help patrons find and use them. Rather than providing a how-to manual, Chu offers his unique perspective on building resources and collections and making them accessible, using tools, and working with students, faculty, the academic institution, and the outside world. In looking to the future, Chu discusses the need to develop a shared language between academic departments and librarians, which will support underlying mission of connecting users with needed information resources.
