Summary: These essays present library programs designed to keep the institution current-and even ahead of technological trends. While the subject matter is very narrow, this is an installment in a series, so other volumes should cover additional topics relevant to academic libraries. The programs are realistic and simple to replicate for a range of libraries, including those with little room in their budget for new innovation. The majority of programs were successful, but there are some examples of ideas that did not work (most notably the library bookstore), and these serve as a warning to libraries attempting similar projects. Purchase this for academic libraries looking for ideas on how to re-model their practices for the 21st century.
