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"
I just wanted to mention that as I'm sitting down to read McCook's book that I am very pleased with her taking the time to layout and tie together what she hopes to convey in each chapter. Her short descriptions and objectives in the first few pages are very thoughtful and provide a good overview that I'm sure will lead to my better understanding and retention of her book. I wish more authors did this.
