New Libraries, Old Values.
Gorman, Michael
Australian Library Journal, v48 n1 p43-52 Feb 1999
Lists values that should underpin librarians' work: stewardship, service, intellectual freedom, privacy, rationalism, commitment to literacy and learning, unfettered access to recorded knowledge and information, and democracy. Discusses how these values should be used to shape a vision of the future library, a "library as a place" that challenges the vision of a "library without walls." (AEF)
