Posted by arlekeno on September 13, 2013

Major Issues
•Role of Collections: Does he put collections on the back burner with the push for more conversation and participation?
•Neutrality and Bias: Prof Lankes has issue with Librarians being Neutral, This is seen as a major value of librarianship by many.
•Lack of Historical Connections: It’s New. Have the ideas been tested?
•Constructivism and Knowledge: Uses Constructivist view of Knowledge.
