Managing academic support services in universities : the convergence experience

"This timely book takes stock of some 20 years of experience of convergence. It explores management practice throughout the sector in order to assess how extensive the converged model has become, and what variations in the model exist: the reasons for converging - or de-converging, or deciding not to converge at all; the perceived advantages and disadvantages of the model adopted; and what lessons have been learned." "The book contains case studies contributed by directors of information services throughout the UK, as well as internationally from Europe, the USA and Australia. This book is essential reading for all managers in academic libraries and computer service departments, and for all university staff with responsibility for policy in this area."--Jacket
