The following 58 minute presentation by Wayne Wiegand (F. William Summers Professor Emeritus of Library and Information Studies and American Studies at Florida State University) was recorded at the John W Kluge Center at the Library of Congress on April 13, 2017
From the Library of Congress Description:
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.
