    1 thought on “Introduction Public Librarianship

    1. I read this as part of one of my courses. We mostly used the readings to spur weekly discussions on the class message board. Those usually were grounded in experiential evidence from our jobs working in libraries.

    2. Not a terribly engaging read, by any measure. It touches on some important topics for prospective librarians, but it's so exceedingly dry and disjointed that the multi-page tables come as something of a relief. Poor manufacturing quality does not help.

    3. Completely forgot to 'finish' this book, whoops. Anyway, library textbooks are rarely scintillating--but this one's more interesting than most, and I think it'll be a good reference to have for the future.

    4. I felt that this textbook went into too much detail at times--is it important that I know that so-and-so used charts in their presentations in 1976? No. And the author was biased at times too.
