Advances in information technology, networked systems, and especially the advent of the Web have driven a rapid and vast change in academic libraries. Almost every aspect of library work has been dramatically impacted by the Web which enabled greatly enhanced remote access to collections and services and has prompted innovations such as virtual reference, e-book and e-journal collection development, and digitized archives. Academic Library Research: Perspectives and Current Trends updates traditional topics that have undergone exceptional, and in some cases, unexpected change since 1990 as well as reaching into new areas that have developed. It combines theoretical scholarship as well as research designed to inform practice, including case studies and user surveys.
