The Accidental Fundraiser
Here is an in-depth and wide-ranging look at libraries and librarianship in the Caribbean region today. Editors Cheryl Peltier-Davis and Shamin Renwick set out to document the state of Caribbean libraries in the 21st century by examining the responses of these institutions to the changes, challenges, and choices in an increasingly electronic and virtual information environment. More than 40 practitioners joined in the effort, contributing 25 chapters that address the myriad obstacles and opportunities facing Caribbean libraries. The book begins by providing essential historical perspective followed by coverage of trends, projects, and issues in library management, innovative services, integration and impact of information technology, cooperation and resource sharing, training library users, distance education, and the role of the 21st-century librarian. This remarkable work is certain to inspire any information professional or LIS student seeking to understand how librarianship can and is flourishing in challenging environments.
