"The Compleat Librarian": And Other Essays
Press of Case Western Reserve University, 1971 - 183 頁
"Jesse Shera's essays on books, reading, and libraries are witty, often philosophical pieces whose essential message, hinted at rather than repetitously stated, is that librarianship is an art, not a trade or a technology. These fifty-one essays...are concerned with the librarian, his problems and experiences, the place he works, the tools he uses, the books he puts on his shelves, the public he serves, and what his future holds"--Dust jacket.
