Description

This article explores the current status and challenges of subject service in academic libraries in mainland China. The authors selected top thirty universities nominated by Chinese University Alumni Association (CUAA) in 2009 and examined their library webpages in order to identify the current state of subject service. The study concludes that subject service has not been popularized and its development is uneven. Subject service is an emerging trend of reference service in academic libraries. Subject librarianship is facing great challenges and opportunities in the future.
