As professional texts go, this one was somewhat dense, but remained thought-provoking. The intended audience is most likely library and information science educators (as well as the ALA Committee on Accreditation), although as a practicing public librarian I found the book a catalyst for becoming an advocate for appropriate "library" education. I'm young in this profession, but once I arrive at my place in time to pass the baton as it were, I would like to know that my younger counterparts have been prepared not only for the technological challenges of librarianship, but also be knowledgeable in the classic theory and values of professional Librarianship. Definitely a great book to use in introductory library science course. I hope Crowley will use it in his instruction.
