Gorman and Fischerspooner

Michael Gorman, ALA president, is scorned by the blogerati. I have been trying here and there to defend him.

But it’s not Michael I am defending so much as a plea to those who see no value in the generation passing out…to look at library history and see that they have made many contributions.

As a student at the University of Chicago GLS in 1971 I was taught FORTRAN. And at that time GLS was one of the only places imagining a future of online catalogs. The addition of MARC to AACR2 was the bridge.

Even Fischerspooner does Hamlet (and claims to blog badly).
