This collection of essays and unpublished papers is an informal, sometimes irreverent, look back at the author's nearly quarter-century in the library profession. Most chapters recall an anecdote, memory or reminiscence that represents an important lesson in being a librarian or library manager, and that in one way or another projects its relevance into the future of librarianship. As the author notes in his Preface, "[Libraries] also need to be re-membered, that is, taken apart, examined, and reassembled in order to reach the new levels of service that will be required in the future barreling toward us." Among the many topics discussed are fund-raising, libraries as research institutions, library buildings for the 21st century, digitization in 21st-century academic libraries, globalizing American librarianship, and library education reform.
