Progressive Librarian. Introduction By Alison M. Lewis. Why, here at the beginning of the twenty-first century, are we putting together a volume of papers that question the role of neutrality within librarianship?

Progressive Librarian.

These pieces circle around the concept of neutrality, which some of the authors may conflate with objectivity. These concepts are not the same.
