Summary
"University Futures, Library Futures: Aligning library strategies with institutional directions" establishes a new framework for understanding the fit between emerging library service paradigms and university types. Researchers examined the impact of increased institutional differentiation in universities on the organization of academic libraries and the services they provide. As libraries move away from a collections model in which libraries measure their success by how large their collections are, this report puts a framework around library services, explores emerging patterns in different institutional settings, and gauges the importance of these services areas--now and for the future--according to surveyed library directors. The work has three main components: <list type="bulleted"> <itm>a working model of United States higher education institutions that is characterized by educational activity (Research, Liberal Education, Career-directed) and mode of provision (traditional-residential and new-traditional-flexible)</itm> <itm>a library services framework that covers nine key areas comparison of the above two to test the hypothesis that the services portfolio of libraries map onto the institutional priorities of their host university.</itm> </list> Demographic variables include the basic Carnegie class of the participants' universities and the job titles of participants
