Walt Crawford at Walt at Random has posted about Five Blogger Heroes (Sort of.) And I’m one of them. I’m incredibly pleased and humbled to be mentioned.
I just got my copy of his new book, “Balanced Libraries: Thoughts on Continuity and Change.” It’s a great read (and I don’t say that because he quotes me – though I will admit that is what prompted me to buy the book.)
This is the sort of book I wish I had been able to read when I was in grad school. It’s a wonderful treatise on the importance of balance in our libraries, which is a subject near and dear to my heart. It discusses the library as place, collections and services, the generations, and much more. I’m only part-way through the book, and am looking forward to reading the whole thing.
I highly recommend it! You can get your own copy here.
