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"
Irene brought up this topic and it had caused me to pause too. When I was visiting Victoria, Canada a couple of weeks ago my dad made a similar comment, but he was referring to the increased security trying to get back into this country. They stop each person and spend some quality time with them before letting them back in. I'm assuming that these are two completely difference concepts with the same name -- homeland security couldn't have been tightened up that much when this was written. What does Fortress America mean as McCook uses it?
