In 1992 the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) surveyed administrators in member libraries regarding resource strategies of the previous three years. This paper summarizes revenue activities, adaptive tactics, and budgetary practices reported by 87 Canadian, U.S. private, and U.S. public university libraries and establishes a baseline for comparing these factors. The period from 1990 to 1992 has been a difficult one for ARL members, with the largest reductions in public support experienced by public university libraries. All respondents sought outside revenues to supplement their campus allocations. Virtually every responding library had experienced some form of internal restructuring, and three of every five had eliminated positions over the three-year survey period. Administrators valued flexibility in fund reallocation very highly, but few had much control over carrying unspent funds to the next year. While 88% of respondents expected the demand for services to grow, only 32% anticipated budget increases. Greater selectivity in activities and greater library sharing are likely to result from the economic realities. Three appendixes contain the survey summary results, the cover letter, and the questionnaire. (Contains 33 references.) (SLD)

Here is a comprehensive look at planning for reference services in the 1990s. Full of practical as well as theoretical information, Reference Services Planning in the 90s gives readers a valuable overview of the "big picture" in current reference service. While some of the issues that faced librarians ten years ago are no longer significant, others remain--and an entirely new set of topics has arisen which needs to be addressed in light of recent developments in the field. Readers will find this book an important source of guidance and help as they negotiate their way through the current decade of reference services and beyond. Reference Services Planning in the 90s focuses on the issues that are important in reference work today. Chapters are practitioner-oriented and informational in nature. Some contain extensive bibliographies for future research. Among the many topics discussed are: reference service to rural library users and off-campus students and faculty the high cost of reference and the need for reassessment of service and delivery planning for online reference NREN and reference service education for reference/information service evaluation of reference service Library educators, library administrators of medium to large institutions, and reference librarians at all levels will find of wealth of practical knowledge in Reference Services Planning in the 90s. Individuals planning for reference service in academic and larger public libraries will find useful information in the areas of automation, education and staff development, evaluation, and service to specific populations. The book also serves as a helpful tool for those teaching reference services. p;lt;li>the high cost of reference and the need for reassessment of service and delivery planning for online reference NREN and reference service education for reference/information service evaluation of reference service Library educators, library administrators of medium to large institutions, and reference librarians at all levels will find of wealth of practical knowledge in Reference Services Planning in the 90s.

In this optimistic new book, librarians examine how changes in society, the information industry, and libraries require iconoclastic thinking and acting on the part of the information specialists to take maximum advantage of the opportunities that are present to better the profession, the professionals, and services to their patrons. The focus of the volume is on managing functions typically associated with technical services. Recent changes to library functions such as the changed roles of managers and the necessity for fund-raising as a method of obtaining basic operating funds are discussed fully. Running across the varied chapters are recurring themes such as the need for flexibility in staffing and organizational structures, looking at the traditional in new ways, and convergence and union. The chapters, written by experienced academic librarians, will be of interest to both managers of libraries and to those who are concerned with how the libraries are managed. Students of library science will find this an invaluable guide to gaining a deeper knowledge of the changes in technical services, and how they relate to the general public coming into the library.
