Neuerscheinungen bei Library Juice Press

Der Verlag Library Juice Press von Rory Litwin kündigt für 2010 einige interessante Neuerscheinungen an, die ich gerne lesen und vielleicht auch rezensieren möchte:

Tracy Nectoux (Hrsg.): Out Behind the Desk: Workplace Issues for LGBTQ Librarians. "Out Behind the Desk: Workplace Issues for LGBTQ Librarians is an anthology of personal accounts by librarians and library workers relating experiences of being gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, or queer at work. A broad spectrum of orientations and gender identities are represented, highlighting a range of experiences of being and/or coming out at work".

Richard J. Cox: The Demise of Library School: Personal Reflections on Professional Education in the Modern Corporate University. "In The Demise of Library School, Richard J. Cox places the present and future of professional education for librarianship in the debate on the modern corporate university. It is a series of meditations on critical themes relating to the education of librarians, archivists, and other information professionals, playing off of other commentators analyzing the nature of higher education and its problems and promises".

Martin Wallace, Erik Estep, Rebecca Tolley-Stokes (Hrsg.): Gen-X Perspectives on Librarianship. "The objective of this book is to view, critique and analyze what makes Gen-X librarians unique among other generations of librarians, what is unique or different about the professional situation of Gen-X librarians, what have Gen-X librarians contributed to the field, and what have they changed about the profession. In order to fully understand the X-Generation and librarianship, a variety of perspectives is needed".
