ACRL announces the publication of Interdisciplinarity and Academic Libraries, edited by Daniel C. Mack and Craig Gibson.
Interdisciplinarity and Academic Libraries is number 66 in the ACRL Publications in Librarianship (PIL) series.
Through 10 forward-thinking, detailed essays, Interdisciplinarity and Academic Libraries addresses an emerging yet largely unexamined strategic priority for academic and research libraries – interdisciplinarity in the academy. As colleges and universities chart new areas for knowledge creation, teaching, learning, outreach and service, libraries face challenges in responding to these transformational changes in higher education. Library leaders must seize this exciting opportunity to place the academic library at the center of the emerging interdisciplinary academy by creating and delivering a transformative suite of programs, services and collections.
Interdisciplinarity and Academic Libraries offers a variety of perspectives on transforming academic library programs, collections and services to meet the evolving challenges of today’s higher education world. The essays bring an interdisciplinary perspective to collection development, information literacy, digital projects and scholarship, knowledge organization, services for research centers and other timely and relevant topics. The work is essential for all professional and LIS education collections.
Interdisciplinarity and Academic Libraries is available for purchase in print, as an e-book, and as a print/ e-book bundle through the ALA Online Store; in print and for Kindle through Amazon.com; and by telephone order at (866) 746-7252 in the U.S. or (770) 442-8633 for international customers.
