Academic Libraries and Toxic Leadership examines a phenomenon that has yet to be seriously explored. While other so-called feminized professions, such as nursing, have been studied for their tendency to create toxic leadership environments, thus far academic librarianship has not. This book focuses on how to identify a toxic leader in an academic library setting, how to address toxic leadership, and how to work toward eradicating it from the organization. In addition, it discusses which steps can be used to prevent libraries from hiring toxic leaders.

As the Chinese economy develops, academic libraries continue to evolve and provide indispensable services for their users. Throughout this growth, the scientific and cultural dialogue between China and the United States has made it necessary for each country's libraries to understand each other. Academic libraries often act as catalysts for progress and innovation; proper management and applications of these resources is key to promote further research. Academic Library Development and Administration in China provides a resource to promote Sino-U.S. communication and collaboration between their academic libraries. In considering the relationship between China and the West, this publication serves as a timely reflection on the expanding global field of information science. This publication is intended for librarians, researchers, university administrators, and information scientists in both the U.S. and China.

  • The acquisitions assemblage : putting it all together.
"As a discipline, acquisitions encompasses everything from purchasing and budgeting to enabling access to materials; and every format from books, monographs, and serials to e-books, subscription-based electronic resources, and beyond. In this guide, Holden boils it to down to its essentials while providing a strategic framework that introduces and integrates all aspects of acquisitions. Using a holistic, hands-on approach that�s as useful for working librarians as for those studying the profession, this book provides an overview of acquisitions as a library profession, with a discussion of basic competencies, notions of ethics, and the organizing principle of “assemblage”; lays out a robust conceptual framework that unifies disparate aspects of acquisitions work and synthesizes its practical aspects; thoroughly examines content acquisitions in all formats, with an in-depth look at digital materials; covers such important trends as the rise of e-books, the ramifications of mobile devices as a mode of content access and interaction, demand-driven acquisition, and shifting expectations regarding paid-for content; tracks advancements in technology, including the widespread implementation of discovery services for content searching; underscores the responsive service component of acquisitions as informed by user expectations, community feedback, and usage standards such as COUNTER and SUSHI; addresses budgetary issues such as changes in services offered by vendors and subscription agents, and the emergence of a “new normal” for budget constraints and expectations resulting from the recession; and looks ahead to what anticipated changes to acquisitions means for the future Presenting a model that�s both comprehensive and flexible, Holden demonstrates how technical competencies and ethical imperatives can inform the day-to-day workflow of acquisition librarians"--Publisher's website.

Although many humanists, from Petrarch to Fulvio Orsini, had written briefly about library history, the De bibliothecis of Justus Lipsius was the first self-contained monograph on the topic. The De bibliothecis proved to be a seminal achievement, both in redefining the scope of library history and in articulating a vision of a public, secular, research institution for the humanities. It was repeatedly reprinted and translated, plagiarized and epitomized. Through the end of the nineteenth century, scholars turned to it as the ultimate foundation for any discussion of library history. In Ancient Libraries and Renaissance Humanism, Hendrickson presents a critical edition of Lipsius's work with introductory studies, a Latin text, English translation, and a substantial historical commentary.

"An incisive, compulsively readable biography of the man the Guardian called "the most influential avant-garde publisher of the twentieth century." An impetuous outsider who delighted in confronting American hypocrisy and prudery, Barney Rosset liberated American culture from the constraints of Puritanism. As the head of Grove Press, he single-handedly broke down the laws against obscenity, changing forever the nature of writing and publishing in this country. He brought to the reading public the European avant-garde, among them Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter, radical political and literary voices such as Malcolm X, Che Guevara, and Jack Kerouac, steamy Victorian erotica, and banned writers such as D. H. Lawrence, Henry Miller, and William Burroughs. His almost mystical belief in the sacrosanct nature of the First Amendment essentially demarcates the before and after of American publishing. Barney explores how Grove's landmark legal victories freed publishers to print what they wanted, and it traces Grove's central role in the countercultural ferment of the sixties and early seventies. Drawing on the Rosset papers at Columbia University and personal interviews with former Grove Press staff members, friends, and wives, it tells the fascinating story of this feisty, abrasive, visionary, and principled cultural revolutionary--a modern "Huckleberry Finn" according to Nobel Prize-winning novelist Kenzaburo Oe--who altered the reading habits of a nation"-- Provided by publisher.

"L'oeuvre de Paul Thiry d'Holbach (1723-1789) est à la pointe du radicalisme philosophique des Lumières. Diffusée d'abord clandestinement (la plupart des livres furent imprimés aux Pays-Bas), sa pensée connut malgré les condamnations, une large diffusion. Les rééditions et traductions en témoignent fort tôt. Sous la Révolution les éditions se multiplient pour diminuer sous l'Empire et la Restauration. Depuis 1830, le torrent reprend son cours. Il est malaisé de s'y retrouver parmi les productions anciennes, qui atteignent des prix élevés. Devenue rare, coûteuse, la Bibliographie de 1971 est dépassée. Ce travail a été complètement revu et surtout augmenté. La présente édition conviendra au libraire, au chercheur, et au curieux soucieux de mieux connaître une pensée souvent originale, diverse et radicale."--Page 4 of cover.

A distinguished antiquarian bookseller, Wood has been pursuing these fish for decades, and has what is probably the most extensive collection in private hands. For this selective bibliography he has chosen 230 of the most interesting titles (some of them so rare that they might be encountered only once in a lifetime) and arranged them by country and date. All titles are illustrated. What makes this a real pleasure is the knowledge he brings to bearnot only as a bookman, but also as a reader and a fisherman.

"Le Web est aux bibliothèques qui savent tirer parti de sa richesse et de sa diversité, au service de publics toujours plus connectés. Au cours de ces dernières années marquées par la dématérialisation des supports, la question de l'évolution des bibliothèques s'est souvent traduite en termes de "lieux" conviviaux et adaptés aux nombreux usages des différents publics. Mais qu'en est-il de la présence, de l'offre de services et de la visibilité des bibliothèques sur le Web ? Le Web de la fin des années 2010 est multimédia et accessible en temps réel. Il permet de relier des personnes, des documents, des données, et même des objets. Il offre de nombreuses opportunités pour les bibliothèques, quelle que soit leur nature. A l'heure de la mobilité et des plateformes collaboratives, à l'heure de la "génération qui ne veut pas posséder", à l'heure des données ouvertes et de plus en plus massives, de nombreux enjeux se font jour. Au-delà des étiquettes "Web 2.0", "Web 3.0", ou encore "Web des objets", il s'agit pour les bibliothécaires d'utiliser celui-ci pour y inscrire la bibliothèque, ses ressources et ses services, afin d'attirer et de fidéliser de nouveaux publics, de renforcer les liens avec et entre les usagers, de créer de nouveaux services, et plus globalement de faire rayonner l'offre de la bibliothèque et la compétence de ses équipes. Cet ouvrage s'adresse à tous les professionnels des bibliothèques et décrit d'un point de vue très opérationnel les différents moyens de répondre à ces enjeux cruciaux. Chaque chapitre est consacré à un thème spécifique : créer et gérer des communautés via les médias sociaux (de Facebook à Pinterest, en passant par YouTube); augmenter la visibilité des catalogues et des bibliothèques numériques grâce aux nouveaux modèles de catalogage et aux principes du référencement naturel ; valoriser et disséminer les ressources électroniques, notamment à travers la visibilité des livres numériques et le développement d'applications ; analyser et filtrer la surabondance informationnelle grâce à la veille, la curation et en s'appuyant sur les humanités numériques... Chacun des nombreux canaux, méthodes ou services présentés fait l'objet d'une description détaillée, illustrée par des exemples concrets et des bonnes pratiques. La question des compétences nécessaires, ainsi que les aspects juridiques et organisationnels sont également évoqués."--Page 4 of cover.
