Summary

The book summarizes the role of institutional identity in the emergence of new types of libraries such as joint use libraries and digital libraries. Professional and institutional identity has shown to be one of the most problematic, yet overlooked issues to deal with when traditional libraries such as public libraries and academic libraries develop into new shapes. The author deals with this issue in a straightforward manner which clearly shows that issues of identity is crucial to make change and innovation in libraries understandable. This book serves as a reminder of the professional and institutional identity and its role in development of libraries and librarianship. It also focuses the fact that changes in identity in itself helps trigger change and development in libraries.
