As budgets for libraries continue to shrink, the key challenge facing the 21st century librarian is finding how to do more with less.

Time and Project Management Strategies for Librarians features more than thirty essays that provide valuable tips for the professional who must cope with increasing demands upon their resources. Librarians will get tips on how to:
•identify the most important tasks for the library• eliminate non-essential functions and processes • increase reliance on volunteers, interns, and students • optimize daily routines and schedule staff effectively • increase productivity through the use of social media and email • increase project and time management skills and personal productivity through setting and meeting goals
With productivity tips for all librarians—from the newly hired to the most seasoned veteran—this volume will help libraries provide better service to their users and also show librarians how to give this service without losing their personal lives and their sanity.

"Our sources of information, and the practices we use to find it, are in a period of rapid flux. Libraries must respond by selecting, acquiring, and making accessible a host of new information resources, developing innovative services, and building different types of spaces to support changing user behaviors and patterns of learning. A Field Guide to the Information Commons describes an emerging library service model that embodies all three spheres of response: new information resources, collaborative service programs, and redesigned staff and user spaces."
"Technology has enabled new forms of information-seeking behavior and scholarship, causing a renovation of libraries that revisits the idea of the ‘commons’ -- a public place that is free to be used by everyone. A Field Guide to the Information Commons describes the emergence, growth, and adoption of the concept of the information commons in libraries. This book includes a variety of contributed articles, and descriptive, structured entries for various information commons in libraries across the country and around the world."--Jacket.

Includes a chapter by former College at Brockport Faculty member Joan K. Lippincott: Linking the Information Commons to learning.
Space, whether physical or virtual, can have a significant impact on learning. Learning Spaces focuses on how learner expectations influence such spaces, the principles and activities that facilitate learning, and the role of technology from the perspective of those who create learning environments: faculty, learning technologists, librarians, and administrators. Information technology has brought unique capabilities to learning spaces, whether stimulating greater interaction through the use of collaborative tools, videoconferencing with international experts, or opening virtual worlds for exploration. This e-book represents an ongoing exploration as we bring together space, technology, and pedagogy to ensure learner success.

Includes a chapter by former College at Brockport faculty member Joan K. Lippincott: Net generation students and libraries.
The Net Generation has grown up with information technology. The aptitudes, attitudes, expectations, and learning styles of Net Gen students reflect the environment in which they were raised—one that is decidedly different from that which existed when faculty and administrators were growing up. This collection explores the Net Gen and the implications for institutions in areas such as teaching, service, learning space design, faculty development, and curriculum. Contributions by educators and students are included.

Literature on American higher education has grown enormously. This volume is a guide to reference sources on higher education in America. The book contains entries for roughly 800 titles, published between 1861 and 1992. Each entry includes a descriptive annotation. Included are books, monographs, government publications, and other reports. Entries are grouped in chapters according to type of reference work, such as bibliographies, dictionaries and encyclopedias, and directories. Within each chapter, general works are listed first, followed by others arranged by more specific topics, such as administration, collective bargaining, and comparative education. While most of the works were published between 1970 and 1990, the volume includes works from 1861 to 1992. Author, title, and subject indexes add to the usefulness of this reference tool.

"This excellent annotated bibliography was compiled in response to the increasing demand for access to sports information. It includes English-language monographs, serials, government publications, and ERIC documents. Most items have been published in the US or Canada since 1970. Journals and magazines are excluded. The emphasis is on competitive rather than recreational sports. ... A list of indexes, databases, information centers, and special collections of physical education and sports is also provided. ... This work is recommended to undergraduate libraries of all types and to large public libraries. There is no other extensive annotated bibliography available on this subject. It will be a a handy source wherever general and individual sports topics are researched." -- Choice
