Librarianship and Legitimacy

Librarianship and Legitimacy: The Ideology of the Public Library Inquiry is a book I found on amazon that might prove interesting reading. I'll post if I read it. If anyone else has read it, please let me know what you think.

From the Booklist review: The Public Library Inquiry, conducted for ALA during 1947^-50 by the Social Science Research Council, reported that its two main duties were to appraise public libraries in terms of their own stated objectives and to appraise the appropriateness of those objectives to the background of American social and cultural institutions and values.
