Redesigning Library Services: A Manifesto

Michael Buckland

Published in 1992 by the American Library Association. ISBN 0-8389-0590-0.

"This is a useful book because it is practical and an important book because it will color the way in which we see libraries. It is a wonderful antidote to the nihilism that has been induced in some by technological change. It affirms the importance of libraries and shows us how we can have faith in the future of libraries without taking refuge in nostalgia. It is, in the very best sense of the terms, progressive and forward-looking." - From the Foreword by Michael Gorman.
