UPDATE: “The Global Librarian” eBook Available in Multiple Formats From Open Library and Internet Archive

Last year we posted an item about a book/ebook titled The Global Librarian produced by the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) and the New York Metropolitan Area Chapter of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL/NY). The book is edited by Lisa Chow, Caroline Fuchs, Jason Kucsma, Carrie Netzer Wajda, and Sandra Sajonas.

With contributions from over 25 professionals working in wildly different libraries across the world, and with 17 case studies celebrating the innovative programs and services offered by library professionals, The Global Librarian highlights the important relationships librarians forge within their local communities and aims to shine a light on the vital role played by librarians today and reveal their ambitions for tomorrow.

Today, the wonderful Online Books Page (an all-time fave resource) added the book to their collection and in doing so reminded us that the full text ebook is available for free in multiple formats from:

The Internet Archive or via the Internet Archive’s Open Library.

The book can be read online from the IA or downloaded in these formats.
