Title:Introduction to Changing times, changing libraries (Papers presented at the Allerton Park Institute November 14-17, 1976)
Author(s):Bonn, George S.; Faibisoff, Sylvia G.
Subject(s):Libraries and society
Future trends
Abstract:Lacking a crystal ball, scientists, economists, political scientists, businessmen, educators, and other professionals are nevertheless trying to understand and possibly to forecast future developments. Since social change is inevitable, librarians must be ready and alert to understand, explain and cope with change during their professional lives. The specialists invited to the institute were asked to discuss from their own research perspectives: ( 1 ) three major causes of change government, economic conditions, and science and technology; (2) possible results of change in three areas of vital interest humanities (including leisure and morals), education and social institutions; and (3) the process of change and ways to create conditions for change. Librarian respondents were to point out various implications for librarians of the remarks made by each of the specialists, and to be ready with their own views on the topics if necessary.
