With the advent of the information and communication technologies, traditional library activities are undergoing transformation in a big way. Modern library’s collection includes a vast array of information resources, databases, electronic journals, e-books, digital images, institutional repositories etc. To manage a modern library, library professionals need to have awareness and knowledge on management of electronic resources, federated and discovered tools for single click search, literature techniques, application of RFID and other technologies, user needs and knowledge on soft skills etc. Keeping these perspectives and issues in mind the National Conference on Management of Modern Libraries (NACML) was organized by SEARCH- The health science library in association with the department of Library and Information Science, Manipal University, Manipal The main objective of the conference was to provide an opportunity to LIS professional to explore the ways and means to manage the modern libraries where electronic resources are playing an important role in meeting the information needs of the users and to explore, discuss and share ideas and knowledge related to innovative modern library management systems to meet the needs of the changing environment. In five technical sessions under five different categories titled Technologies for Management, Best Practice in Modern Libraries, digital libraries and Role of Library Professionals in Management of Modern Libraries held over the two days, total 51 papers were presented at the conference. Various challenges and issues related to management of modern libraries were discussed in the technical sessions and some of the authors shared the best practices of their libraries. The author highlighted the importance of digital libraries and stressed the needs of various skills to work in digital environment. The papers presented in the conference have been edited and brought out in the form of a conference proceedings.

As the Chinese economy develops, academic libraries continue to evolve and provide indispensable services for their users. Throughout this growth, the scientific and cultural dialogue between China and the United States has made it necessary for each country’s libraries to understand each other. Academic libraries often act as catalysts for progress and innovation; proper management and applications of these resources is key to promote further research. Academic Library Development and Administration in China provides a resource to promote Sino-U.S. communication and collaboration between their academic libraries. In considering the relationship between China and the West, this publication serves as a timely reflection on the expanding global field of information science. This publication is intended for librarians, researchers, university administrators, and information scientists in both the U.S. and China.

Faced with increased budget cuts, libraries must continue to advance their services through new technologies and practices in order to keep pace with the rapid changes society is currently facing. The once traditional in-person services offered can no longer be the only option, and to keep themselves afloat, libraries must offer more in terms of digital services. The convenience of offering mobile and digital services brings a new wave of accessibility to libraries and a new question on just how much libraries will need to change to meet the newfound needs of its patrons. Beyond offering these digital services, libraries are incorporating other types of technology in multifaceted ways such as utilizing artificial intelligence practices, social media, and big data management. Moreover, libraries are increasingly looking for ways to partner and collaborate with the community, faculty, students, and other libraries in order to keep abreast of the best practices and needs of their users. The Research Anthology on Collaboration, Digital Services, and Resource Management for the Sustainability of Libraries explores emerging strategies and technologies that are redefining the role of the library within communities and academia. This reference book covers extensive ground on all the ways libraries have shifted to manage their resources, digitalize their services, and market themselves within the new technological revolution. These continued shifts for libraries come with benefits, challenges, and future projections that are critical for discussion as libraries continue to strive to remain updated and relevant in times of change. This book is ideal for librarians, archivists, collection managers, IT specialists, electronic resource librarians, practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students who are interested in the current state of libraries and how they are transforming to fit modern needs.

This is an open access book. Management science aims to study the dynamic study of human use of limited resources in management activities to achieve organizational goals: complex and innovative social behavior and its laws. And engineering management refers to the management of important and complex new products, equipment and devices in the process of development, manufacturing and production, and also includes the study and management of technological innovation, technological transformation, transformation, transformation, layout and strategy of industrial engineering technology development. The development or breakthrough of management theory is accompanied by the development and progress of science and technology, and the level of science and technology and the level of management theory in each historical period are mutually adaptive, and it can be said that the progress of science and technology plays an important role in promoting the development of management. At the same time, the rapid development and progress of science and technology give a strong injection to the development of engineering, and provide the possibility for engineering construction can use new technology, new equipment, new technology and new materials. Modern management is an important development direction of management science nowadays. And the use of modern management in engineering has an important role in saving social costs, ensuring project quality, and improving safety awareness and behavior ICMSEM 2022, in contrast to the previous two conferences, will focus its discussions on modern management, talking about the benefits that modernization brings to engineering and: Develop and advance management science through the study and application of certain issues To open up new perspectives in the sharing of speakers and inspire the audience to new ways of managing in engineering. To create a forum for sharing, research and exchange at the international level, so that the participants can be informed of the latest research directions, results and contents of management science, which will inspire them to new ideas for research and practice. Papers on management science and engineering management will be accepted and published in the form of conference proceedings for those who cannot attend the conference.
