The Librarian and the Art of Reading

The Librarian and the Art of Reading Librarians are, on the whole, dangerously modest concerning the actual and potential influence their work exercises on society. I say dangerously modest, because in these days it is certainly not wise to ignore the great influence which libraries, as centres of learning, can have on a community. It is something which is likely to increase greatly during the next generation if the new educational plans are brought to full maturity. If these statements are accepted as facts, then it is necessary to try and assess the librarian's responsibilities in the scheme of things now and as it might be in the future, and perhaps also attempt to define his sphere of influence. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Librarians are, on the whole, dangerously modest concerning the actual and potential influence their work exercises on society. I say dangerously modest, because in these days it is certainly not wise to ignore the great influence which libraries, as centres of learning, can have on a community. It is something which is likely to increase greatly during the next generation if the new educational plans are brought to full maturity. If these statements are accepted as facts, then it is necessary to try and assess the librarian's responsibilities in the scheme of things now and as it might be in the future, and perhaps also attempt to define his sphere of influence.
