Independent libraries in 'British librarianship and information work 2006-2010'
The new volume of British librarianship and information work, covering the years 2006-2010, contains for the first time a chapter dedicated to independent libraries. Although not exhaustive, the “Independent libraries” chapter covers most of the important developments and trends regarding independent libraries in these years. It also serves as a review of key literature around the subject. The chapter makes an attempt at identifying some opportunities and challenges for the sector, and hopefully will contribute to further comment and debate.
British librarianship and information work 2006-2010 was edited by J.H. Bowman and is available from www.lulu.com.
