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"
To me (and I see to some others as well) this book presented common sense applications. Libraries are vital to communities and they play a major role - yep, got it. I agree with Bridget that it appears the book is written for another audience - not necessarily for librarians only. Given the book is 5 years old, has there been an increase about the place of libraries in communities in others' writings? What has librarians' responses been to McCook's call for participation in the community?
