    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 80.00

    When you picture a librarian, what do you imagine? An old white woman with glasses and a prudish disposition?

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 65.00

    Libraries and Archives analyses the facts and arguments behind an increasing debate as to what extent libraries and archives are fulfilling the same missions.
