Abstract

That there has been an unprecedented growth in accumulated knowledge, and a corresponding growth in the size of library collections has been recognized as a truism in library literature for at least the past 20 years. Today we continue to see the emergence of new fields and subfields, with each contributing to the exponential growth of the amount of material published. Librarians find their time sliced thinner and thinner as more and more demands are placed upon them due to growing job responsibilities as well as the need to keep current both in their subject specialities and with the technical developments in librarianship. Newer interdisciplinary fields create an even greater problem because of the broader range of expertise required by the various disciplines that comprise these fields.
