Simplifying the Complex

Simplifying the Complex Librarianship abounds in theories. Financial stringency has held back many a wouldbe progressive practitioner and turned him into a somewhat wistful thinker. It is so gratifying to offset a mundane achievement by contemplating what might have been under betterconditions. Occasionally a few progressive practitioners, able or fortunate enough to loosen the bonds a little and avoid repressions, emerge as lucid thinkers, and a Jast or a Savage or a McColvin shakes the library world. The lucidity of an able mind, which sees where it wants to go and why, often brings unexpected and undesirable repercussions. The easy exposition of a difficult theory is disarming, and the lesser mind, lethargic after a losing battle against conditions, lulled into a pleasant daydream around once fondly imagined ideals now lost in the battle for survival, sees in the more imaginative approach of the greater mind a heavensent solution to its problems. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Librarianship abounds in theories. Financial stringency has held back many a wouldbe progressive practitioner and turned him into a somewhat wistful thinker. It is so gratifying to offset a mundane achievement by contemplating what might have been under betterconditions. Occasionally a few progressive practitioners, able or fortunate enough to loosen the bonds a little and avoid repressions, emerge as lucid thinkers, and a Jast or a Savage or a McColvin shakes the library world. The lucidity of an able mind, which sees where it wants to go and why, often brings unexpected and undesirable repercussions. The easy exposition of a difficult theory is disarming, and the lesser mind, lethargic after a losing battle against conditions, lulled into a pleasant daydream around once fondly imagined ideals now lost in the battle for survival, sees in the more imaginative approach of the greater mind a heavensent solution to its problems.
