A Search for Meaning: American Library Metaphors, 1876-1926.
Nardini, Robert F.
Library Quarterly, v71 n2 p111-40 Apr 2001
Discusses the use of metaphor during the first 50 years of the modern American library movement in the hopes of inspiring one another, recruit newcomers to the profession, and to influence outsiders. Examines references to the library in terms of more visible institutions such as schools, universities, the church, and business and industry. (Contains 143 references.) (Author/LRW)
