Title: Public Libraries/Academic Libraries: More alike than different?
Authors: Currie, Susan

Issue Date: 17-Feb-2011
Abstract: Think academic libraries and public libraries have nothing in common? While there are distinct differences, (communities served, services and programs), they are more alike than you might think (collections, online resources and dedication to service). After spending most of her career in academic libraries, Susan made the leap to a busy public library and has been taking note of the differences and the similarities ever since. Susan's talk will compare public and academic libraries and why public libraries are more important than ever.
