the joint-use college/public library can be an ideal solution to serving patrons while managing overextended resources, and this illuminating book scrutinizes successes and failures of the joint-use model. three founding faculty librarians of a joint-use college/public library discuss the factors that should go into evaluating when and where a joint library is suitable. incorporating lessons learned from five case studies, the authors

include a short history of joint libraries, exploring how this model is a natural evolution from reciprocal borrowing, shared catalogs, and interlibrary loan explain how to manage all aspects of a joint-use library, including choices about the physical plant, decisions on contractual requirements, collection development, classification systems, cataloging and technical services issues, personnel, and more address emerging trends and best practices for serving students and the general public simultaneously offer interviews with administrators and staff in successful joint-use libraries

this timely ala editions Special report provides a succinct but comprehensive overview of the privatization of public libraries. it provides a history of the trend of local and state governments privatizing public services and assets, and then examines the history of public library privatization right up to the California legislation introduced earlier this year to restrict cities in the state from privatizing library services. the Special report also examines what happens when a private, for-profit organization takes over essential management tasks and decisions of a public library, including the effects this can have on services, patron satisfaction, and staff, as well as legal issues. it provides indepth recommendations for librarians who want to retain control of their own institutions. Complete with case studies, statistics, and a valuable checklist of to-dos for libraries that are facing partial or complete privatization.

as baby boomers continue to swell their ranks, behavior and trends in older adults have changed dramatically in the last ten yearsand most literature on this topic is hopelessly out of date. Schull, co-editor of Boomers and Beyond, helps improve the situation by
