Budgeting for information access : managing the resource budget for absolute access by Murray S Martin( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book thoroughly examines current access and ownership issues as they relate to libraries' financial practices and suggests alternative budgeting methodologies. The purpose is to examine the various and contradictory ideas about collection development with a focus on the budgeting implications of different access and ownership strategies. Libraries are aware that they need to redesign collection and acquisition budgeting strategies based on an informed review of the information landscape. This book provides that review and provides justifications for using program-oriented transactional budgeting. It is written for all librarians engaged in planning and budgeting for the full library program, especially in regard to acquisitions, resource sharing, collection development, systems, and reference services. It would also be an important book for library students to read. The authors are well known experts in the field of collection development and library administration. The book discusses the issues surrounding overlapping library functions created by new and alternative methods of providing access to information in libraries. The authors focus on transactional budgeting, which has been used for interlibrary loan costs, as a method that could integrate overlapping program expenses. They include an excellent current bibliography. This is an important book because of its attempt to summarize the variety of current issues relating to financing access to and ownership of information in libraries today. In a cost-benefit culture, the recommendations it makes regarding review of library programs in relationship to transactions are very sensible. I think it is an important contributionto the field of library administration

Reno SFRA, June 1993( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science fiction writers speak on the theme of "the Imaginative Future." Frederik Pohl sees the future as a collection of possibilities for us to shape in the present. James Gunn gives a historical overview of "the literature of change," showing H.G. Wells as an example of those who affect the future. Stan Robinson argues that our future will be a nightmarish urban industrial world unless we engage the problems of overpopulation and overdevelopment today. Lisa Goldstein discusses the future of imaginative writing, saying that fantasy should be revolutionary and subversive. Joan Slonczewski says that education must become a matter of learning to solve problems rather than memorizing facts. Karen Joy Fowler asserts that the U.S. used to believe in progress but now locates the Golden Age in the past. Keith Ferrell gives examples of ways to solve future problems. Poul Anderson argues that technological developments and individual rambunctiousness will devise new entertainments in the future. Other highlights include an interview with Guest Artist Rodney Marchetti and short takes of JoAnne Pransky (robot psychiatrist), Paul Joseph (Star Trek law commentator) and Mel Seescholtz (cryogenics chronicler)
