What are We Out to Do

What are We Out to Do MANY years ago at a summer library school held in a university town, contemporaneously with other educational courses, I took part in an amusing debate between the students of librarianship and the rest of the students, belonging to the teaching profession, on the resolution that the library was more important to the nation than the school. We,i.e., the librarians,lost the debate, the teachers being considerably larger in numbers than were we, but greatly to our surprise we won over a number of the teachers, and with perhaps more justice than is usual in similar cases, naturally claimed a moral victory. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

MANY years ago at a summer library school held in a university town, contemporaneously with other educational courses, I took part in an amusing debate between the students of librarianship and the rest of the students, belonging to the teaching profession, on the resolution that the library was more important to the nation than the school. We,i.e., the librarians,lost the debate, the teachers being considerably larger in numbers than were we, but greatly to our surprise we won over a number of the teachers, and with perhaps more justice than is usual in similar cases, naturally claimed a moral victory.
