Acknowledgement

I am indebted to the librarians who participated in the interviews and answered some thought-provoking questions with courage and honesty. I am grateful to the individuals and organisations who gave me permission to reproduce diagrams, quotations and photos in this book. As librarians, we are often at the beginning or end of a reader’s journey, but rarely are we in the writer’s shoes. This has been a personal challenge, and I owe tribute to my husband Dave, who provided some light relief by way of the illustrations in the book. I would like to thank my family and work colleagues and especially my parents, Angela and Herb, for their encouragement and to my Jack Russell, Sam, for pet therapy (see Chapter 9).
