Is There a Surplus of Librarians?
White, Herbert S.
Library Journal, v123 n7 p52,54 Apr 15 1998
Suggests that the main reason for the presumed surplus of librarians is that these professionals refuse to defend, let alone expand, their territorial boundaries from "experts" who decide results independently of library staffs and budgets. Argues that librarians should provide better service, rather than encouraging self-service and that certain tasks should only be assigned to librarians. (AEF)
