At the crossroads : librarians on the information superhighway by Herbert S White( )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present and future of the library profession provide the focus on this new collection of 57 of previously published articles and speeches. The essays in this work were written during a time (early 1980s to 1994) when there was significant change in librarianship. Professional issues examined range from library education, funding, personnel, volunteerism, and leadership, to technology, ethics, diversity, and burnout. Opportunities and dangers on the horizon of information science are discussed. The book is divided into three sections: "Librarians and Their Role As Defined by Themselves and by Others"; "Librarians, Their Self-Image, and the Perceptions That Define Their Preparation"; and "Librarians in the Cruel World of Politics and Money." Each section begins with general remarks by Herbert S. White about the issues raised in the articles. Throughout these sections, several unifying themes emerge: the dangers inherent in what Drucker calls the "moral imperative"; the unwillingness of some librarians to cope with either administration or politics; the substantial differences between the concepts of education and training; the consequences of management styles; the interdependence of librarians and journal publishers; the political realities and rivalries inherent in the clashes over resources; and the paradoxical notion that "in the absence of money, there is money."

Librarianship--quo vadis? : opportunities and dangers as we face the new millennium by Herbert S White( )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collected here are White's many articles and speeches from the last 5 years, the period since he retired from being a librarian for 50 years and from writing the Library Journal column, "White Papers." White, pronouncing sweeping commentary on the library profession's opportunities and strengths, dangers and shortcomings, is an advocate for librarians more than libraries. He addresses long-standing frictions between library educators and librarians, calls for librarians to chart a course for libraries rather than waiting for this or that political and public wind, and criticizes several library associations, including the ALA. Also addressed is censorship, budgets, lack of administrative support for libraries, and do-gooder librarians more intent on helping the community than making (damn) sure the library keeps its funding.

The report tabulates and analyzes responses to two questionnaires returned by 531 (out of 1672) profit and non-profit publishers of 974 (out of 2552) United States scholarly and research journals. Certain categories of periodicals were excluded because they were not believed to ordinarily contain communications useful for scholarly purposes, or they were considered to have little economic impact. The questionnaires dealt, among other things, with present practices and anticipated future practices after the new copyright law (P.L. 94-553) goes into effect on January 1, 1978, with respect to the supplying of authorized copies directly or through agents or clearinghouses; permitting photocopying beyond the exceptions provided in the new statute; and acceptable prices for authorized article photocopying or the supplying of authorized photocopies. Responses are tabulated by circulation size, subject matter, and type of publisher. Both the complete journal and publisher questionnaires are provided, as well as a sample accompanying letter and follow-up letter. Also included is the National Serials Data Program (NSDP) serial data sheet for publishers. (Author/JD)
