#Libraries, #Leadership, and #ScholarlyCommunication: Essays by #RickAnderson @Looptopper

AndersonR_300

A creative thinker on topics related to library collections and scholarly publishing, Rick Anderson does not back away from controversy. “Whenever you’re forced to make choices, values are going to come into conflict,” he writes in the preface. “The painful truth is that not everyone in the organization has the same priorities and wants the same things in the same amounts.” When it’s time for your organization to make choices and set priorities, this collection of essays, articles, white papers, and blog posts will provide conversation starters for your strategic discussions. Anderson offers engaging, persuasive arguments on range of timely topics, such as:

  • the decline of print;
  • patron-driven acquisitions;
  • Open Access (OA);
  • blacklisting publishers and relations with publishers’ sales reps;
  • patron privacy;
  • symptoms of zealotry;
  • unintended consequences of the print-on-demand model; and
  • how to define library value.

Ideal for browsing, the ideas in this collection will kickstart your brainstorming sessions and spur your organization to confront choices head on.
