September 21, 2011

David Carr's BookFormer faculty member, Dr. David Carr, who retired from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's School of Information and Library Science (SILS) in 2010, has published his latest book, Open Conversations: Public Learning in Libraries and Museums through Libraries Unlimited.

According to the publisher's Web site, "Open Conversations: Public Learning in Libraries and Museums is a provocative book, one that is designed to offer courage to cultural institution administrators and staff even as it opens their eyes to the possibility that their facilities can offer more than they are. Rather than offering prescriptive answers, the author invites readers to consider museums and libraries in fresh ways." 

This book is in addition to Dr. Carr's previous publications, The Promise of Cultural Institutions and A Place Not A Place.
