Editorial Reviews

Review

One committee member declared, "It made me think critically about our profession and our future.... I was taken out of my comfort zone and that was a good thing." Other members praised the Atlas as "challenging," "complex," and "exciting both in its ideas and its design." --ABC-CLIO/Greenwood Award Jury


[T]he text covers such a vast array of pertinent subjects that almost any reader…may find a few topics of personal interest.

(The Futurist)

Our profession's Finnegans Wake.

(Publishers Weekly)

Deep thinking, beyond brands, down to the core concepts and competencies that define librarianship. Lankes creates thoroughly described verbal and visual explanations of the relationships between the many disparate parts that make up our professional whole.

(Jessamyn West, community technology librarian, blogger, and creator of librarian.net)

The Atlas is not a book; it is a manifesto, a set of principles and convictions aimed at shaking new life and belief into a field that too often fears for its own future. Read it and be prepared to act.

(Andrew Dillon, Dean and Louis T. Yule Regents Professor of Information, School of Information, University of Texas at Austin)
