Let's Burn Them All: A Librarian's View
Werner, Roye
Journal of Management Education, v38 n5 p759-763 Oct 2014
In this rejoinder to "Let's Burn Them All," a librarian supports the author's case for eliminating textbooks in the teaching of management and organizational behavior. A move away from textbooks would free libraries from worrying about whether and to what extent to provide expensive textbook access to students, a long-standing dilemma. Students could be newly exposed to the rich array of resources that the library provides. Professors and librarians could work more closely together in creating collections that support classroom learning. And faculty could be inspired by and become involved in the Open Access movement, an outcome greatly desired by the academic library world.
