520 "The 1970 and 1994 editions of The Black Librarian in
America by E.J. Josey singled out racism as an important
issue to be addressed within the library profession.
Although much has changed since then, this latest
collection of 48 essays by Black librarians and library
supporters again identifies racism as one of many
challenges of the new century. Essays are written by
library educators, library graduate students, retired
librarians, public library trustees, veteran librarians,
and new librarians fresh out of school with great ideas
and wholesome energies. They cover such topics as poorly
equipped school libraries and the need to preserve the
school library, a call to action to all librarians to make
the shift to new and innovative models of public education,
the advancement in information technology and library
operations, special libraries, recruitment and the Indiana
State Library program, racism in the history of library
and information science, and challenges that have plagued
librarianship for decades. This collection of poignant
essays covers a multiplicity of concerns for the 21st-
century Black librarian and embodies compassion and
respect for the provision of information, an act that
defines librarianship. The essays are personable,
inspiring, and thought provoking for all library
professionals, regardless of race, class, or gender."--
