The focus of Library Material Costs and Access to Information is on the abilities and strategies of libraries to provide access to information in an environment of expanding costs and limited funding. Discussions cover such topics as new technological developments that assist in accessing information, cost analysis of monographs and serials, and library cooperation. This new volume will be a catalyst to promote further discussion and investigation of the issues raised and will be of great help to library administrators and managers. The chapters of this thought-provoking book represent a collection of papers that were given at the fourth annual conference of the University of Oklahoma Libraries.
