Finding a public voice : using Barbara Fister as a case study

This eclectic volume shares vivid examples of how academic librarians, inspired by the writings of noted library leader and blogger Barbara Fister, are engaging with others and blazing a leadership path for the profession on topics such as information literacy, scholarly communication and e-publishing, librarian career adaptability and healthcare privacy rights. Throughout the collection, Fister serves as a model for fearless public expression, speaking out about libraries and learning and engaging in substantive debate. Through her example, Theiss, Kovacs and their contributing authors explore a range of subjects through the lenses of collaboration and partnerships, questioning the status quo, bravery and new modes of learning. Representing the diversity and creativity in academic librarianship, the nine chapters in Finding a Public Voice are intended to ignite continued dialogue and inspire readers to find and express their own public voices, following Fister's inspirational example. This volume is essential reading for librarians interested in information literacy, scholarly communication, e-publishing and the future of the profession
