The March 2006 issue of Info Career Trends, published by the Rachel Singer Gordon (one of my library heroes) focuses on Libraries Building Communities. There are some fanstastic articles to read here. First, a quote from Rachel’s introductory note:
“”Libraries Build Communities.” Yes, we’ve all heard the tagline. We think less often, though, about the ways in which we create our own professional communities, about how we build the networks and forge the connections that allow us to be successful. Today’s contributors demonstrate that we are strongest in combination and when we work together, showing various ways to create these ties and benefit from our relationships with our fellow librarians.”
I’m going to print out this entire issue and delve deeply into it’s content. great work Rachel (and authors). And thanks for the LBC book link.
