Abstract

Across the campuses of many of our most prestigious universities, quiet and cautious negotiations are being attempted by academic librarians wishing to craft more robust and higher value service offerings to graduates in the form of access to their information resources: these negotiations are fraught with difficulties which, on first inspection, may seem understandable, but which, when examined more closely, may be based as much on prejudices we have about working professionals and the relationship we as educators should have with them, as they are about logistical and financial concerns.
