Librarianship and Political Values: Neutrality or Commitment?
Blanke, Henry T.
Library Journal, v114 n12 p39-43 Jul 1989
Describes dominant political trends in librarianship, including the adoption of political neutrality as a means toward acquiring professional status, conservatism, and a willingness to allow government and business to define professional roles. It is argued that values of equity and public service, not the imperatives of technocracy and marketplaces, should govern access to information. (23 references) (CLB)
