On the importance of alternative literature in libraries
I think I neglected to emphasize this… Nancy Kranich’s preface to the 6th edition of Alternative Publishers of Books in North America is online. It’s good reading about the importance of alternative literature in libraries, from someone who has been studying the issue for years. Nancy Kranich is a past president of ALA and has been heading up a subcommittee of the Intellectual Freedom Committee dealing with media consolidation and local control of media. Their work will be very valuable as it comes to the surface.
