As if the readings on the Dewey System, enumerative and synthetic approaches to classification and PRECIS weren’t enough to send my head into a spin, I then discover that a couple of ‘serious’ websites have decided my previous rant was worthy of deconstruction. Quite why this was deemed to be a worthy use of their time, I’m not too sure. This is blog is not here to offer a fully considered view on the future of the libraries. It is merely a chance for me to either share my ‘joy’ of studying the course or make a couple of observations about public libraries. It’s not intended to carry weighty examinations of the future of public libraries (although that may come in time), it’s merely a crutch to support my learning. I would think it would be more valuable if those that cared about libraries actually deconstructed what was said by Burnham, rather than small-time bloggers.
