Pub. Date:
Budd (information science and learning technologies, U. of Missouri-Columbia) presents librarians with an opportunity for a critical reflection and self-examination of what their profession is and what it can become in the future. Coverage includes an overview of the varied history of libraries, from antiquity to the 20th century; societal and cultural forces influencing the profession over the past 125 years; how librarians influence their own identity, through professional discourse and library education; the ethical practice of librarianship; the location of the profession within a democracy; the "Information Society" and libraries; and the competing dualism of libraries as both an end and a means.
