ALB Celebrates National Library Week 2017 with some library themed choices.
Opportunities for Minorities in Librarianship
Josey and Peeples
Submitter: It always exciting to see librarian career guides at my local public library. I am always talking up our career to people who would make great librarians. So it’s good to have books that better help people understand what we do. Sadly, this is not one of them. All this represents is why it’s important to weed your career section. I am attaching the punch card I found in the back of the book. Those were all removed in the 1990’s, so it’s pretty cool to see. Who remembers those!?
Holly: Fantastic book for the 70s, and worth updating if possible to reflect diversity in librarianship. This belongs in a library that collects on the history of librarianship. It cites the 1970 census, for goodness’ sake. That was FOUR censuses ago!
