Why Academic Libraries Matter.

Barbara Fister. Peer to Peer Review; Library Journal. August 13, 2009.
Values the library can provide:
  1. A total experience that works well
  2. Provide meaning, depending on the user's goal
  3. Create relationships with the users and the institution
Find out how the library can fit in the life of the user. The library is important as a broker or purchaser of information. Library principles go beyond collections and local needs; it is about access, about the importance of knowledge and about what we do with information.
