Librarianship in America: Some Random Thoughts

Library Review

ISSN: 0024-2535

Publication date: 1 February 1937


I BELIEVE America was once called “the land of opportunity.” It still is so far as librarians are concerned. It has so many more worth while posts to offer the man and woman of ambition. Probably the posts don't seem so very numerous to the hundreds of younger American librarians who covet them; to the English librarian who can count the posts worth £800 or more on his hands, the American picture looks more attractive.
