LIS 501: Foundations of Library and Information Studies

Note that both Hirsh’s and Lankes’s books below are available as ebooks via University of Alberta Libraries, as well as from the usual online and brick-and-mortar channels. We still recommend buying a copy of at least Lankes’s book, however. The more recent second edition of Lerner’s book is preferred over his earlier first edition (from 1998).
