Librarianship as Conversation

The Atlas of New Librarianship, by R. David Lankes
So I wrote class-assignment posts about each of the major sections of this book over on my school blog, Tiny Glass Houses - if you'd like my thoughts in depth, best to mosey over there (and you may want to start with the oldest posts if you don't want things to build backward). Here I will just say that it's one of only two times in my life that a prof assigning his own book turned out to be a very good thing indeed, and that the usefulness of this book as a provocation, guide, and sampler far outweighed the frustrations I occasionally experienced while reading it.
