[Zitat] Unkommentiert – 1969

Libraries and librarians, as I have said, will be able to play a significant role. They must, and I repeat, develop an active orientation to these developments rather than mantain a passive wait-and-see attitude. To be activist will recquire that they develop new energies in seeking to identify the changing requirements of their patrons; to encourage rather than to resist demands for improved, expanded, and accelerated services; to be in a position to identify requirements so these systems will be more responsive to the library’s users; and, most important, to demonstrate a willingness to assume responsibility for meeting service requirements and a readiness to set their sails to the winds of change.”
