"This compilation on various aspects of alternative librarianship is a sequel to Revolting Librarians, which was published in 1972. The contributors cover topics that range from library education and librarianship as a profession to the more political and spiritual aspects of library life." "The contributions include critiques of library and information science programs, firsthand accounts of work experiences, and original fiction, poetry and art. Ten of the original librarians who wrote essays for Revolting Librarians back in 1972 reflect upon what they wrote thirty years ago and the turns that their lives and careers have taken since."--Jacket

Digital versus non-digital reference : ask a librarian online and offline by Jessamyn West( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Digital versus Non-Digital Reference: Ask a Librarian Online and Offline analyzes the quality of commercial Ask A Librarian (AskA) and tutorial services and how they compare to traditional library services. Edited by Jessamyn West - proprietor of librarian.net and the "hippest ex-librarian on the Web" according to Wired magazine - the book looks at library models and more consumer-oriented models, examining a variety of services that range from Ask Jeeves and Google Answers to your own reference desk and Web e-mail reference forms. Academic librarians and information specialists share their experiences - good and bad - in starting, assessing, or ending AskA services and in working with collaborative reference tools and outsourcing reference services, and discuss the highs and lows of dealing with individual online services."--Jacket
