Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to revisit the Editorial from the first ever issue of Library Review on the 80th anniversary of the journal and discuss whether the issues described in 1927 remain relevant in 2007 and what new issues may be concerning librarians in the 21st century. Design/methodology/approach - The article is a reflective viewpoint. That the ethos of librarianship espoused by R.D. MacLeod in 1927 resonates today, and that while the terminology may change, areas of reflection in librarianship remain similar, even while new challenges present themselves.
