ALA Goal 2000 and Public Libraries: Ambiguities and Possibilities.
Raber, Douglas
Public Libraries, v35 n4 p224-31 Jul-Aug 1996
American Library Association Goal 2000 fails to resolve conflicting theoretical perspectives about the purpose and scope of public library services. While allowing for temporary unity of political action, ALA Goal 2000 may create contradictory service priorities that confuse both the public and librarians. Strengths and weaknesses of the social activist, conservative, and populist viewpoints are examined. (PEN)
