Competing models of librarianship: Do core values make a difference?

Thomas Weissinger

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Librarianship's worldview or philosophy preconditions understanding of ideas such as core value, diversity, and equity. Adherents to the orthodox version of this worldview restrict minority interests while aspiring to become a scientific profession. Those in favor of a modified version of the worldview support cultural diversty and non-positivist knowledge systems.
