). The study presents data about the journals acquisitions and management practices of an international sample of academic and research libraries. The study reports on a broad range of issues, including: spending trends, use of print vs. electronic access, purchases in “bundles”, purchases through consortia, the role of subscription agents, use and plans for use of open access, attitudes towards the pricing practices of a range of major journal publishers, sources of funding for journal purchases and relations with academic and administrative departments of library parent organizations, and the practical management of the journal acquisition process, among other issues. Just a few of the report's many findings are that: • The libraries in the sample acquired a mean of more than 46% of their journal subscriptions in bundles of more then 50 titles.• The libraries in sample canceled a mean of 53 journal titles in the past year.• Mean spending on print edition only subscriptions was $130,721, less than a sixth of total spending.• About a quarter of the libraries in the sample believe that open access has already slowed the increase in journal prices.• 15.56% of the libraries in the sample have paid a publication fee on behalf of an author from their institution.• For 42.22% of the libraries in the sample, all new subscriptions to journals include electronic access.• More than 64% of the libraries in the sample keep track of their various journal subscriptions through use of a commercial software product. • In general, subscription agents seem to enjoy a relatively high level of customer satisfaction. On the issue of timeliness of service, none of the libraries in the sample said that they were highly dissatisfied with their subscription agent and only 2.22% said that they were dissatisfied.• Non-academic research libraries have done more than their academic counterparts to make sure that contracts renew at the same time. Smaller institutions, those with journal budgets of less than $100,000 per year, were less likely to make such efforts than libraries with higher budgets.

Few librarians build more than one library in their careers and renovating or building a whole new library is a very expensive investment. Thus, new or refurbished structures need to be fresh and up to date. While some librarians have the means to visit exemplary buildings as they develop their own library’s master plan, most library leaders and stakeholders won’t actually see the full range of potential projects. Hence, this unique book is both a resource and a brainstorm prompt. It helps library leaders and key stakeholders surface the ideal programmatic aspects that drive exciting design, and offer recent design solutions that have been effectively implemented. Better Library Design: Ideas from Library Journal identifies and celebrates the top trends in library design, capturing current state and provides an authoritative overview for those planning their own projects. This is a colorful, high content survey of dynamic library building projects completed in the last five years, in both public and academic settings. Anchored by Library Journal’s New Landmark Libraries competition, here is the nation’s best examples of innovative, functional, appealing design --- all in glorious full-color so you’ll be both inspired and informed as you make important design choices.

Stell dir vor, du begegnest einem Mann, einem wundervollen Mann, und verbringst sieben Tage mit ihm. Am Ende dieser Woche bist du dir sicher: Das ist die große Liebe, und es geht ihm ganz genauso. Zweifellos. Dann muss er verreisen und verspricht dir, er meldet sich auf dem Weg zum Flughafen. Aber er ruft nicht an. Er meldet sich gar nicht mehr. Deine Freunde raten dir, ihn zu vergessen, doch du weißt, sie irren sich. Irgendetwas muss passiert sein, es muss einen Grund für sein Verschwinden geben. Und nun stell dir vor, du hast recht. Es gibt einen Grund, aber du kannst ihn nicht ändern. Denn der Grund bist du.
