First thus: Revolution in our Minds

"Are libraries in the “information industry”? Perhaps in part, but I believe librarians provide something more personal to their communities and perhaps more vital."


Einen anderen Blickwinkel, der nicht nur jeden Bibliothekar nachdenklich stimmen sollte, gibt es in diesem kritischen Artikel erschienen auf dem Blog von James Weinheimer, abrufbar hier:
First thus: Revolution in our minds by James Weinheimer

Hier ein kurzer Vorgeschmack der Lust auf mehr machen soll:

"By now, it should come as no surprise that I believe the overwhelming majority of the public does not want to find, identify, select, obtain: works, expressions, manifestations, items by their authors, titles, subjects. Sure, some people want to do that once in awhile, but primarily they want something else, and consequently, the library catalog is not what people want."
