Summary
"Ethel Auster and Shauna Taylor's Downsizing in Academic Libraries is a comprehensive study of the trials faced by Canadian academic libraries in the 1990s. The authors surveyed opinions from over 1100 librarians from across the country. Based on these surveys, they describe how downsizing was implemented, while looking at its impact on programs and services, organizational climate, and employees, and its effect on user services and program delivery. Their study also includes a statistical portrait of library expenditures, holdings, and staffing levels set against trends in enrolment for the period 1982-83 to 1997-98." "Downsizing in Academic Libraries will be of interest to policy makers in government, universities, and libraries; to managers and staffs of academic libraries; to researchers, teachers, and students of library and information studies and of organizational strategies, processes, and behaviour; and to all library stakeholders concerned about the effects of budget cutbacks over the past decade."--Jacket
