A fanfare for librarians, in verse
From Managing Information:
Glasgow\'s Poet Laureate Edwin Morgan wrote a poem to mark the opening of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions conference in Glasgow on Monday 19th August . . .
Discussing the poem Edwin Morgan said, \"Libraries are still a vital source of knowledge and information, even in the age of the Internet. With this poem I wanted to reflect on the changes taking place in the way we get and access information as we move into a digital age, whilst still asserting the relevance, power and endurance of books and the printed word.\"
