Our Enduring Values: Librarianship in the 21st Century


    A veteran of four decades of library service and one of today's leading library thinkers, Michael Gorman opens a discussion on library values--those that are rooted in historical perspective and those that can adapt to changing times. This provocative book takes you through the principles of eight core values as it considers the questions on the minds of most librarians today, including: *What is the role of the library today? *What is librarianship in the 21st Century? *What do patrons and communities want from their libraries? *Will libraries be strengthened or destroyed by new and changing technology? *How can I maintain the core values of librarianship into the future? A must-read for progressive librarians everywhere, Our Enduring Values will help you to define your role in the library of the future.
