Summary
"This collection of 14 original papers covers library spaces old and new, real and imagined, large and small, public and private. Contributions range from a consideration of the Garrison library in the British Empire, to the Carnegie library as a social institution, to the imagined library in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The result is a look at the library as a physical, social, and intellectual place within the hearts and minds of its clientele and the public at large."--Jacket
