Must read for library & information science students. Many of the topics in the book are still relevant today. Much has changed in the library world, but then again, there are still some obstacles that the library world will never seem to hurdle. Either way, Gorman is quite knowledgeable about these obstacles that we now face. I just wish we listened.

I had to read this one for my MLIS courses. It had good information, but the fact that Gorman uses the textbook as a pulpit for expressing his beliefs really turned me off. I think I'm pretty much the only conservatice librarian in the world, but seriously, Gorman really pushes his agenda.
What can I say, I'm in library school.
