This new vision for designing the future of academic libraries enables librarians to become indispensable partners in the college teaching endeavor by integrating themselves into the instructional process." "Scenarios, case studies, and profiles throughout illustrate the successes that blended librarians are having on campuses." "This practical, hands-on guide expands the possibilities for academic librarians in public service, reference, instruction, and information literacy, and even library and information science students."--BOOK JACKET
