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"
Commenting on Irene's post -- How can the "the right books" even be considered outreach? I feel like collection development is something different, but I didn't find the authors of these articles to feel that way. This makes me wonder if outreach is nothing more than a way to get people in to read the right books.
