Summary

The 56 papers in this proceedings are divided into three groups--theme, alternative format, and contributed papers. Myths and realities are explored in the first group as they relate to university, college, community, and junior college libraries, and to private sector information utilities. The conference wrap-up session is included in this section. Alternative format papers address the topics of automation in community college libraries, archival management and library networks, public service realities, and public services in research libraries. The 47 contributed papers are presented in 6 sections: academic librarianship, automation/bibliographic control, bibliographic instruction, collection management, general administration, and public services. Specific topics addressed include professional development and values; dual job assignments; transborder data flow; PRECIS; use of the full MARC record; variant subject headings; financial management of online public catalogs; accountability; preservation techniques; cooperative acquisitions; weeding; federal depository program; aging monographs; fiscal problems and an empirical model of library acquisitions; electronic security systems; continuing education; needs of off campus students; academic library budgets; the social science librarian as reader's advisor; free bibliographic database services; differentiated staffing; and circulation of microcomputer software. Also included are lists of contributors, members of the conference planning committee and the Association of College and Research Libraries Board of Directors, and readers of contributed papers. A brief preface and a subject index are provided. (THC)
