This review was originally published there under the title Revolting librarians revisited. You can read it here
I can’t remember when I first heard of Revolting Librarians (Booklegger Press, 1972), but I do know that it was a while ago, and that reading it was long overdue. Edited by librarians Celeste West and Elizabeth Katz, this is a collection of essays, poems, and fiction through which library school students and library workers air dreams, arguments, ideas and (yes) grievances about the contemporary state of librarianship. It was followed 30 years later by Revolting Librarians Redux: Radical Librarians Speak Out (McFarland, 2003), edited by Katia Roberto and Jessamyn West and featuring updates from ten of the “Original Revolters” as well as many new contributions.
