Book Description


Librarians around the world design and implement new ways to serve the information needs of their patrons -- wherever they may be. To meet the needs of a global community of learners, librarians build services that benefit from today's networked information landscape.  

 

The Global Librarian features stories from dozens of librarians from around the world. Hailing from academic, public, school, corporate, and the not-for-profit sectors, the contributors to this book are changing the way in which information is created, organized, and shared.
