Discusses the variable conceptions of art, culture and civilization, and their effects in the formation of library institutions and examines differences and tensions in art, culture and civilization discourses to build a picture of the moral narratives influencing library and cultural institutions.






Does it matter whether your users prefer Mozart to Madonna? the Beatles to Beethoven? While these questions are far from novel to the library profession, rarely does their significance extend beyond the arena of policy debate. In leisurely and thoughtful prose, Sanna Talja raises the discourse to a higher level, inviting us to witness the evolution of music collections in public libraries.
