Discover how to meet the challenges of increasing your library's international publications through digital networks and large shared resource networks with other research libraries!Scholarship, Research Libraries, and Global Publishing reveals a four-year study conducted by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) that shows a tremendous decrease in US and Canadian ARL libraries’international publication acquisitions in a time when North American universities are becoming increasingly global and need to maintain collections of foreign articles. This intense study reflects these trends and provides solutions for increasing acquisitions by studying the use of computers and communications technology to help libraries redesign their methods of service. As a professional in the library science field, you will gain a deeper understanding of making electronic information available to patrons and other libraries and help to keep your library current and proficient in today's high-tech world of digital information. In Scholarship, Research Libraries, and Global Publishing, you will discover how you can increase your library's international publications by sharing the work and expense of acquiring foreign materials among a large number of research libraries and making these materials broadly available to scholars everywhere by electronic networks. From this book, you will learn about the obstacles facing each and the necessary steps to overcome them. Some of the challenges you will gain expertise in handling are:
- understanding the current trends in output of international publications, price forecasts, and the impact of electronic publishing in acquiring foreign publications
- identifying foreign materials that are collection priorities by discipline
- securing understandings with copyright holders to avoid intellectual property issues
- negotiating agreements between universities to shoulder the financial burdens of an extended collection
- refocusing the expectations of faculty about where and how they will find the books, journals, and other important library materials
- discussing and making changes to the acquisition process with scholars, librarians, presidents, provosts, and publishers
