Culture Clash.
Bertram, Sheila; Olson, Hope
Library Journal, v121 n17 p36-37 Oct 15 1996
Discusses two basic cultures within the library science field, one that emphasizes "soft-edged" traditional service and the other newer culture which has evolved around information technology and entrepreneurial drive. Topics include historical background; university pressures on library schools to be "tech-oriented"; alienation of service-oriented students; faculty influences; and the value of philosophical diversity.
