Academic Librarians — please help!
For my presentation at the APLA conference, I will be speaking to the idea of professionalism, what it means, how it matters and etc. At the end of my talk, I would like to point out some things that give me hope for the future. One of the things that would give me hope is research/writing that actually matters outside the librarian profession (aka Research that is ultimately not self-serving).
One example I got from Kathryn Greenhill was Peter Morville‘s Ambient Findability, but I would like more. Any ideas? What I am looking for is the opposite of “For Librarians” texts – influential books and articles by librarians that are intended to be read by people who are not librarians.
