Summary Euro-Librarianship focuses on strategies for working toward cooperation between libraries throughout Europe and the United States to provide the best access and information to research materials as possible. Chapters by several authors in their original languages (with English abstracts) give this book a unique international appeal. Common difficulties such as fiscal constraints and rising book and serial prices are discussed. Stressing enhanced communication and shared responsibilities, this new volume helps bring libraries of all countries closer to the resource sharing capabilities that allowa scholars and researchers much wider access to information than is available today. In this timely new book, many of the papers that were presented at the Second Western European Specialists (WESS) International Conference are brought together to be read and studied by everyone
