Earlier today, I posted the American Library Association’s Library Bill of Rights, 1948. At the risk of getting sucked into the arcane, disputatious, bureaucratic history of someone else’s quasi-legal guiding documents, it might be fun (and instructive!) to play Spot the Differences. Here’s the way the ALA Library Bill of Rights looks today.
Arcane? Disputatious? Bureaucratic? I’m just guessing. Perhaps the librarians have a history of lucid, peaceable, simple cooperation. I hope so.
