Abstract

Outreach services are defined as those based on traditional library services. Libraries utilize resources, improve social education, expand service range, and enrich service content and methods, not only providing the public with diverse and customized services, but also deepening the scope and depth of outreach services. Library outreach services refers to the extension of service ideas, content, space, time, object, and range. Different libraries have distinct meanings and forms of outreach services. Based on the example of the documentation and information system in the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), this chapter briefly states how Chinese research-oriented libraries implement outreach services for various levels of needs in different user groups through persistent innovation. This will provide meaningful guidance and implications for future research on the outreach service practices of special libraries.
