Another library science book I was not impressed with. Although the author has a couple of good points, overall his biases are pretty clear. They became clear in the introductory segment when he questions the sanity of some of his readers (maybe he needs to remember the First Amendment gives freedoms of expression and reading and that maybe the government should stay out of certain things). Overall, a lack of common sense. Pretty much another book about why libraries will not disappear. I have seen the arguments made better elsewhere.

Nika Why are you interested in library science? Are you a librarian? I was for two years but am taking this year off.

Yea, I happen to be a librarian, so a lot of the interest does come from that. Best.
