"In Our Own Selves, Michael Gorman follows up his popular first collection of meditations, Our Singular Strengths (ALA Editions, 1997). Our Own Selves presents one hundred new meditations specifically addressing issues at the heart of the library profession. With such intriguing essays as "Four Centuries of Information Overload" and "The Curse of PowerPoint," Gorman offers potent reminders that librarians are far from helpless in addressing these challenging times in their profession. Each reflective essay opens with a quote and concludes with a "resolution," allowing for a quick mental pick-up. The affirmations that conclude each meditation present attitudes and actions that reaffirm the value of librarianship and re-introduce the joys that make it unlike any other vocation."--Jacket
