Getting libraries the credit they deserve: a festschrift in honor of Marvin H. Scilken
There was a time when nearly every person connected to the library world was familiar with the newsletter, The U*N*A*B*A*S*H*E*D Librarian. It was without question, and possibly still is, one of the most influential publications to cross the librarian's desk. Filled with articles and editorial asides promoting the importance of public libraries within the community framework, this newsletter was the brainchild of Marvin Scilken, a public library director and perennial American Library Association councilor-at-large. Scilken was named one of the 100 most influential librarians of the century, and this book celebrates his legacy of commitment to public library service that has influenced a generation of information professionals. This compilation of essays by library professionals consists of eight topical chapters covering all aspects of his contribution to the public library world. Includes: - The history and contents of The U*L - His achievements as library director - A summary of his accomplishments within the context of the ALA - Examples of his resolutions and communications - His ideas for promotional use of library materials - His work mentoring individual librarians - His views on ethical professional service - A biographical profile on Marvin's life history - A short essay on his writings and influence. Unlike other festschrifts, this book devotes an entire chapter to Scilken's famous one-liners and reflections that found their way into his quarterly newsletter.
