Out Front With Stephen Abram / Edition 1

Tap into the insights of one of the world's leading library visionaries. Stephen Abram has the knack for seeing and expressing the obvious long before most people become aware of the issue. Although he's one of the most prolific writers and speakers in the industry, this is the first time his writings are being collected in one volume. Addressing the many audiences within the library profession—public, school, and special libraries, vendors, corporate librarians, and technology specialists—Abram offers a clear-sighted overview of the complexities of the information landscape in the 21st century. To organize the multitude of his writings and audiences, articles are collected under four key themes:
• Advocacy - Reiterating the value and importance of libraries and librarians
• Technology - Mastering technology in service to library users
• Communities and Generations - Understanding the changing face and needs of the audiences
• The Future - Synthesizing massive amounts of information across all library disciplines gives rise to uncanny predictions for the future of libraries Complete with extensive bibliography of Abram's works and recommended reading list, this paradigm-shifting volume gives perspective on the future of the library profession, challenges preconceptions, and helps librarians stay ahead of the learning curve.
