LIS 950: Libraries and community

The purpose of this seminar is to explore an important topic in library and information studies in depth — in all its intertwined historical, cultural, philosophical, and political aspects — through a graduate reading/discussion seminar. The topic varies each time the course is taught; this time around, we will focus on "libraries and community"

Doesn't the early part of Van Slyck's book talk about the female librarian being "tethered" to the desk, tying her down from her ambition? Yet, later in the book and history, the female librarian was no longer considered "tethered" to the desk, but became a strong and imposing figure. It's all a matter of perception.
