"Librarians Versus the NSA" -- Important article. Plus, loved the quote in here: “Librarians have not only been on the cutting edge of every kind of information technology to evolve—they are the cutting edge. That’s their job. That was true when technology meant tape recorders and typewriters…. Librarians today have as much to do with people who say ‘sssh’ and wear high-neck blouses as a fish does to a bicycle.”

Librarians Versus the NSA Your local library is on the front lines against government surveillance. Librarians have frequently been involved in the fight against government surveillance. The first librarian to be locked up for defending privacy and intellectual freedom was Zoia Horn, who spent three week in jail in 1972 for refusing to testify against anti–Vietnam War activists. During the Cold War, librarians exposed the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s attempts to recruit library staffers to spy on foreigners, particularly Soviets, through a national effort called the Library Awareness Program.

"What the 'death of the library' means for the future of books" -- "This is not the end of the library" is an answer to yet another suggestion to do away with physical libraries and it provides a good defense of libraries as "so much more than repositories of dead tree books."

Secrets of the Stacks — Book Excerpts — Medium. Choosing books for a library like mine in New York is a fulltime job. The head of acquisitions at the Society Library, Steven McGuirl, reads Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, The Times Literary Supplement, The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, the London Review of Books, The London Times, and The New York Times to decide which fiction should be ordered.
