Changes in the funding landscape of libraries in the 1970s and 1980s

Abstract:

As the development and implementation of digital technology began to make its presence felt increasingly in the 1980s, academic libraries were forced to adapt to these new technologies to stay up to date and to provide adequate services that would support the demands of the user and, at the same time, streamline services and functions. As budget allocations became more stringent after the boom of the post-World War II era and the Korean conflict, institutions of higher education, and therefore academic libraries, needed to adapt to the new economic realities while maintaining and expanding services.
