Alternative Library Literature [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Alternative Library Literature, 1996/1997 by Sanford Berman,James P. Danky Book Resume:

Progressive Library Organizations

Alternative Library Literature [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Progressive Library Organizations by Alfred Kagan Book Resume:

This work presents the history and impact of the seven most important progressive library organizations worldwide—in Austria, Germany, South Africa, Sweden, United Kingdom, and two in the United States. Each organization is considered within its national context, and in fact, the English word “organization” does not quite fit the nature of all of the groups. The South African organization, LIWO, was transitional in that it helped bring South African librarianship from apartheid to majority rule and then disbanded. The other organizations or their successors are still working in one form or another. Some of the organizations have had or continue to have vibrant local chapters, though many of the original activists have recently retired or died. The author has interviewed many of them at a time when they were assessing their life work, and handing off to new generations.

Libraries to the People

Alternative Library Literature [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Libraries to the People by Robert S. Freeman,David M. Hovde Book Resume:

With today’s technology, anyone anywhere can access public library materials without leaving home or office—one simply logs on to the library’s website to be exposed to a wealth of information. But one of the concerns that arises is the lack of access for groups isolated by socioeconomic, geographical, or cultural factors. This problem is not a new one. For almost two centuries, public libraries and other organizations have been trying to bring library services to isolated populations. This book is a collection of fourteen essays examining the contributions of librarians, educators, and organizations in the United States who have endeavored to bring library services to groups that previously did not have access. There are three sections: Benevolent and Commercial Organizations, Government Supported Programs, and Innovative Outreach Services. The essays discuss reading materials for two centuries of rural Louisianians, shipboard libraries for the American Navy and merchant Marine, library outreach to prisoners, the Indiana Township Library Program, tribal libraries in the lower forty-eight states, open-air libraries, electronic outreach, and the use of radio in promoting the Municipal Reference Library of the City of New York, to name just a few of the essay topics.

The Laughing Librarian

Alternative Library Literature [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Laughing Librarian by Jeanette C. Smith Book Resume:

Despite the stodgy stereotypes, libraries and librarians themselves can be quite funny. The spectrum of library humor from sources inside and outside the profession ranges from the subtle wit of the New Yorker to the satire of Mad. This examination of American library humor over the past 200 years covers a wide range of topics and spans the continuum between light and dark, from parodies to portrayals of libraries and their staffs as objects of fear. It illuminates different types of librarians—the collector, the organization person, the keeper, the change agent—and explores stereotypes like the shushing little old lady with a bun, the male scholar-librarian, the library superhero, and the anti-stereotype of the sexy librarian. Profiles of the most prominent library humorists round out this lively study.

Alternative Library Literature [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Alternative Literature by Chris Atton Book Resume:

Many librarians, academics, professionals and general readers underestimate both the role and nature of alternative literature. These titles are assumed to be few in number and marginal to mainstream concerns. The quantity of titles published each year alone make it a significant part of publishing, but few of these are noted by the mainstream media and fewer still find their way on to the shelves of bookshops and libraries. Yet they are vital to the development of a library's stock.

Literature, History, Choice

Alternative Library Literature [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Literature, History, Choice by Roman Katsman Book Resume:

Starting with a discussion on the elements of the genre of alternative (counterfactual) history and on its place between the poles of historical determinism and relativism, this book develops a literary theory of the historical alternativeness principle and applies it to the reading of The City with All That is Therein (Ir u-mloa) – one of the most important and less-studied books of the greatest Israeli writer, Nobel Prize winner S.Y. Agnon (1887-1970). The investigation reveals that this principle is by no means inherent solely in modernism and postmodernism, but lies at the very basis of the reading process, particularly at the levels of plot and character origination, and historical and historiographical conceptions that underlie the author’s imagination. The book is intended for all who are interested in modern literature and theory.
