Handbook of Black librarianship by E. J Josey( Book )

14 editions published between 1977 and 2000 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

E. J. Josey and Marva DeLoach have compiled a treasure trove of information about black librarianship. This volume includes history, statistics, and documentation of contemporary issues related both to African American participation in librarianship and to the organizations that they built to provide information resources for their people. Of interest to all librarians, bibliophiles, bibliographers, and students of American culture, this handbook fills a niche in American cultural history. Like the first edition, published in 1977, this new edition chronicles the history and achievements of black librarians in their chosen profession. Chapters documenting pioneering individuals and events are juxtaposed with historical descriptions of early professional organizations. Other sections provide important information related to diversity, including the language of diversity and salient statistical facts about African American librarians. New or revised chapters treat issues related to information technology and electronic resources, library services to African Americans, and library education. Of special interest is the section on African American resources, which covers archival and fugitive literature, library holdings, literature, oral history programs, and museums, with several chapters on awards. A complete section is devoted to the important issue of health sciences libraries and blacks. Another new section covers libraries, library education, and publishing in Africa. The final section highlights the role of African Americans in selected areas of the knowledge industry

New dimensions for academic library service by E. J Josey( Book )

11 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 25 essays written for this compilation focus on a variety of initiatives undertaken by librarians, information scientists, and educators to give increased service with diminished funding. They show librarians responding to a changed environment through creating new organizational patterns, making use of new technologies, and participating cooperatively in library networks. In four parts, the book focuses on the academic library as a vital component of higher education; new approaches to solving academic library problems; unscrambling critical academic library issues; and patterns of library information systems, networks, and consortia. The essays provide an analysis of some of the most pressing problems facing higher education and the responses made by the academic library and other informational services. They range widely in their degree of criticism of the past and plead for a shift of emphasis from traditional library practices to radical ones. (Author/PF)
