David Lankes continues to be a crucial voice in support of libraries as they evolve during tumultuous times. The New Librarianship Field Guide is an invaluable resource for all who care about libraries―and for anyone who wants to help build a bright future for knowledge and democracies in a digital era.(John Palfrey, Head of School, Phillips Academy, and author of BiblioTech: Why Libraries Matter More than Ever in the Age of Google)
Libraries + librarians = community: Lankes makes the case and shows his work. He offers a well-structured argument for where libraries in this century need to be going, and how librarians can get them there, answering the question 'Where in the hell is librarianship going anyhow?' with charm and grace. Lankes's invigorating and challenging ideas will help new and existing librarians find their purpose and achieve positive change.(Jessamyn West, community technology librarian, Open Library and librarian.net)
