Competing Models of Librarianship: Do Core Values Make a Difference?
Weissinger, Thomas
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v29 n1 p32-39 Jan 2003
Librarianship's worldview or philosophy preconditions understanding of ideas such as core value, diversity, and equity. Adherents to the orthodox version of this worldview restrict minority interests while aspiring to become a scientific profession. Those in favor of a modified version of the worldview support cultural diversity and non-positivist knowledge systems. (Author)
