Read about the new and exciting initiatives in library computing and the broad range of implications for the organization and staffing of academic libraries. Now that the bibliographic, transaction, and financial databases in many libraries have been completely automated, the emphasis in library computing has moved away from internal library databases toward new areas. The uniquely qualified contributors to Computing, Electronic Publishing, and Information Technology analyze the profound impact that the computerization of academic libraries has had--and will continue to have--on the services, organization, and staffing of university libraries. They also address the concerns involved in electronic publishing and expert systems, including the design and marketing of electronic information products, design of expert systems, development of electronic publishing markets as joint responsibilities of publishers and librarians, changes in the role of library systems analysts, education for librarianship, and specifically the education of specialists in information technology.
