The first edition of this text was published more than a decade ago. In the intervening years, almost every aspect of health sciences libraries has drastically changed. Today, these necessary partners in the delivery of health care via indirect patient care or biomedical research are challenged to deliver superior services in a cost-conscious environment. This well-written and carefully edited book comprehensively encapsulates strategies and best practices for managers of health sciences libraries amid the competing demands of emerging technologies, institutional priorities, escalating resource costs, and concurrent funding reductions.
