About this Item
- How Long, O Lord, Do We Roam in the Wilderness? A History of School Librarianship
- Wayne Wiegand discusses his current research project -- a history of the American public-school library. This project incorporated five perspectives: the history of public-school education, the history of American librarianship, the social history of reading (including the history of print culture), the history of childhood, and the history of cultural institutions as places. The biblical passage in the title -- quoted by a famous school library leader in a 1979 article -- expresses school librarianship's decades-old frustration at being positioned between the education and library professions and having its obvious contributions frequently overlooked and undervalued by both.
