LIBRARIANS IN THE 21ST CENTURY: IT IS BECOMING IMPOSSIBLE TO REMAIN NEUTRAL STACIE WILLIAMS ON HOW TO CONFRONT MICROAGGRESSIONS IN THE LIBRARY

My reply:

Too bad for this writer, but librarians and libraries based on paper books are already obsolete dinosaurs living off the public dole like welfare queens. In the age of the Internet, they are nothing but a waste, sorry. What is a master’s degree in “library science” anyway? Something that belongs in the trash can of er, history. If the money wasted on libraries were spent on improving Internet access to the public and, in cases of digitized books that require payment, subsidizing access, society would be farther ahead. Books belong with antiquarians and collectors, not serious scholars trying to get at the info. in them, which should be powered by electronic search.
