Confronting the future : university libraries in the next decade by Canberra Australian Academic and Research Libraries( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The conference that generated these papers focused on the range of issues presently facing university libraries. Because there is no general consensus on the nature or importance of the most substantive problems or the solutions to those problems, the conference was designed to encourage discussion of the issues. An analysis of a series of recent government reports on aspects of higher education, which was made available to all speakers and participants, provided a special context for the conference. This publication includes two background papers, a keynote address, and six additional papers: (1) Background Paper: "Confronting the Future: University Libraries in the Next Decade--An Outline of Some Issues (Christine Henderson and W. Boyd Rayward); (2) Background Paper:"Commonwealth Government Policy and Reports on Higher Education: An Overview for Libraries" (Stephen Oakshott); (3) Keynote Address: "Print, Automated, Electronic: University Libraries in the Next Decade" (Michael Buckland); (4) "Challenges Confronting University Libraries and Strategies for Response" (K.R. McKinnon); (5) "Funding of Higher Education: Issues for Libraries" (George Zuber); (6) "Libraries in Education for the 21st Century: Intersectoral Relationships" (Gregor Ramsey); (7) "Shifting the Paradigm: Successfully Managing University Libraries" (Robert Prinable); (8) "Tactics or Strategy? The Future from the University Information Provider's Perspective" (Tom Cochrane); and (9) "Conclusion" (Tony Wicken). The volume also contains highlights of the general discussion and a brief biography of each of the 10 contributors of papers. (KRN)
