Essential facts, advice, lists, documents, guidelines, lore, wit, and wisdom: Along with fun and irreverence, it's what readers have come to expect from the "Whole Library" series. In a one-volume compendium that's by turns encyclopedic, useful, and engaging, this latest entry provides an overview of digital libraries, covering the state of information, issues, customers, challenges, tools and technology, preservation, and the future. From blogs to Wikis, highlights include: digitization project planning tips and tools; the value proposition of the digital library; lists of Internet libraries, libraries that I.M., libraries that podcast; and interpretations of NextGen demographic data. Collecting insights from library luminaries as well the perspectives of interesting experts from outside the ranks of library professionals, "The Whole Digital Library Handbook" decodes the jargon and cuts to the chase

Libraries designed for learning by Scott Bennett ( Book )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To what extent have recent library design projects been driven by an understanding of how students learn and how faculty teach? To find out, Yale Librarian Emeritus Scott Bennett conducted an extensive study of the motivations and planning methods for library renovation and construction projects undertaken between 1992 and 2001. His study entailed a Web-based survey of more than 380 institutions, and phone interviews with 31 library directors and chief academic officers. He concludes that while most of the projects are serving users well, they have rarely been informed by a systematic assessment of how students learn and faculty teach. The author suggests that planning based on such an assessment could equip the library to serve an even more vital function as a space for teaching and learning. The report is intended for academic librarians who are responsible for library construction and renovation projects, and for campus academic officers who wish to engage substantively with the question of how library space can advance the core learning and teaching missions of their institutions

The Library of Congress National Recording Preservation Plan ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The National Recording Preservation Plan has been devised to provide a blueprint to "implement a comprehensive national sound recording preservation program," as mandated in the National Recording Preservation Act of 2000. Congress specified that the program established by the Librarian of Congress under this legislation "shall ... increase accessibility of sound recordings for educational purposes." Preserved recordings can benefit the public only if they are made available for listening. Technological, institutional, and legal impediments to broadened access create daunting challenges for the national preservation effort. This plan identifies the audio field's most important preservation and access problems and offers recommendations for surmounting them."--Page 1

Dimensions and use of the scholarly information environment : introduction to a data set by Amy Friedlander ( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We know from anecdotal evidence that users' expectations of libraries are changing as they find more information directly from the Web. Anecdotal evidence, though, is hardly enough for developing persuasive plans for new library services. The Digital Library Federation (DLF) and Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) commissioned Outsell, Inc., to conduct a large-scale study of undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty members from academic institutions ranging from the small liberal arts college to the largest research university. Our hope was that a picture of user behavior would emerge. This report presents a summary of the findings and 158 selected data tables; it should be viewed as an entry to a much larger data set. The full set of 659 data tables provided by Outsell will be mounted on CLIR's or DLF's Web site. We encourage readers to make use of these tables and ask that you share with us your analyses of the data. In addition, CLIR will deposit the raw data tapes with the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR). CLIR and DLF expect to commission additional work based on the data
