Description: From Booklist
Revolting Librarians (double entendre very much intended!) came out 31 years ago, in 1972, when the 1960s were in full swing. An early example of desktop publishing, it had a red cover and sold for only two dollars! Library Journal called it "highly readable fun." Library Resources and Technical Services (LRTS) was more hesitant, describing the book as "a statement of discontent with almost every aspect of the American library establishment" that offered little practical guidance. These comments apply just as well to this Festschrift in honor of the first edition. The red cover is gone, and the cost has risen to $35. But 56 contributors, many returning from the first edition, rant and rave in a friendly, nostalgic style. It may not change much, but it's a fun read. RBB

Product Description:
"Revolting librarians aren't defined by what they are, they are defined by what they do. In fact, it's not even what they do, but how they do it"-Katia Roberto and Jessamyn West, in the Preface.

This compilation of witty, insightful, and readable writings on the various aspects of alternative librarianship edited by two outspoken library professionals is a sequel to Revolting Librarians, which was published in 1972. The contributors, including Alison Bechdel, Sanford Berman, and Utne Reader librarian Chris Dodge, cover topics that range from library education and librarianship as a profession to the more political and spiritual aspects of librarianship. 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.
