about this item

This guide shows librarians in small libraries how to better serve their communities in the digital age by understanding user and community needs to build collections based on them. After an introduction to libraries, users, and communities, chapters outline concepts and methods that contribute to user services: community outreach; supporting social justice, social inclusion, and rights of access to information; dealing with changing fiscal, political, and community environments, including the changing role of the library, transitioning as a new library director, the internet, and digital training for librarians; nurturing diversity; fostering collaboration and entrepreneurship; using outreach as a marketing tool; bridging the digital divide; re-envisioning library spaces; and assessing user needs.
