MEDIA REVIEWS
The essays described. . . are positive and hopeful. * Library Resources & Technical Services (LRTS) *
Edited by associate professor and chair of the MLIS program at the University of Washington Information School, this work brings together 23 chapters answering the question 'The library in 2020 will be ....' Authored by 24 invited librarians, professors, and practitioners, and organized into 5 sections, the work discusses the future of libraries in terms of 'stuff,' people, community, place, and leadership and vision. Interestingly, while the materials come from various backgrounds and environments, they share similar messages. . . .The individual essays are poignant, ranging from personal ideas to well-researched and documented essays. For anyone considering the future of libraries and librarianship of any type, this book is a welcomed read, as ideas seen on blogs, at conferences, in professional readings all come together and can be shared in a way that one does not feel so isolated. Whether reading the thoughts of 'The Annoyed Librarian,' Marie Radford, Stephen Abram, Michael Crandall, or Daniel Chudnov, the reader will gain an understanding from the inside of what the future of the library may become. * American Reference Books Annual *
