Summary
"From Librarian of Congress, James Billington, to founding director of the Center for the Book. John Cole, the leading-edge information specialists of the day come together to discuss the role that libraries play in advancing democracy in the twenty-first century. As issues such as filtering and copyright protection take center stage in libraries everywhere, librarians, advocates, and policymakers alike can find answers to tough questions in this thorough examination of a complex and relevant theme."--Jacket
