Tropes, History, and Ethics in Professional Discourse and Information Science.
Day, Ronald E.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v51 n5 p469-75 Mar 15 2000

Examines how professional discourses, which are foundational for library and information science theory and practice, establish themselves in culture and project history, past and future, by means of appropriating certain dominant tropes.
