Perspectives SIG Friday morning at 8:30am as it

Modern Librarianship) in the Las Palmas Room.
Past practices, both innovative and competitive,
have shaped modern librarianship. In this
session three examples will be examined. Emily
Knox will present competing reading effects
models, Ellen Rubenstein will examine libraries'
innovative responses to health information
needs, and Sean Burns introduces an early
example of library automation adoption.
