Libraries and the Enlightenment (Essential Readings in the Philosophy of LIS)

Libraries and the Enlightenment (Essential Readings in the Philosophy of LIS) | Library Love | Scoop.it

If libraries are to survive the 21st century, we have to decide what role we play in our communities. Are we going to be providers or educators? Providers focus on satisfying patron demands; educators focus on satisfying patron needs. Providers measure gate-counts; educators measure community impact. Providers want patrons to read; educators want them to read well. What Bivens-Tatum offers is a reminder that libraries aren’t just there to satisfy their communities…they are there to improve them, to educate them, to enlighten them.

Are coffee shops the new libraries? | Library Love | Scoop.it
