The Four Rightly Guided Caliphs. Commentary on Shera, J. (1969). Twelve Apostles and a Few Heretics (Journal of Education for Librarianship, 10(1), 3-10)
Richardson, John V., Jr.
Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, v56 n1 Win 2015
The author believes that Jesse Shera had the prescient ability to know the fads and fancies of higher education. Yet, some, if not many of the twenty-three titles he listed in 1969 as being useful to understand higher education, are not ones to readily reach for today. In this article, the author lists four successor titles as the ones he would recommend to guide any incoming doctoral student trying to understand how the field of higher education has changed since Shera's day. [For the historical paper, "'Twelve Apostles' and a Few Heretics," see EJ1073510.]
