You Will Truly Understand Libraries and Librarians By Reading These Books
Books and libraries, libraries and books, two words that are inseparable in the public imagination. But how many people truly understand libraries and librarians beyond their association with books? Because I suspect that the answer is “not many”, I want to — ironic twist forthcoming — recommend some books to help you gain an understanding of my challenging, unusual, and ultimately fulfilling profession. If, however, you want to preserve the myth that librarians read all day, that’s fine. Stop here, do not pass go, do not collect $200. For those who want insight on librarianship, read these books!
