About the Contemporary Public Library. A Short Selective Bibliography

Maria Senatore Polisetti

Texte intégral

1This short work was drawn up after the Turin conference (12 December, 2015), in which speakers discussed very important issues, all related to the theme of the identity of the contemporary public library. With this paper, my purpose is limited and modest, and offers a short survey of publications in Italy, Spain and France concerning the topics discussed at the conference, and presents a brief selective bibliography. I believe that this tool will be useful to broaden the debate. I would like to present some possible paths of research that could be followed in future. This bibliography is designed to provide a further extension to this book, a selection of essays and articles, published between 2010 and 2014 in Mediterranean Europe. This work, as has already been said, of course, does not aspire to the completeness and comprehensiveness, and offers a selection of bibliographic contributions based on these simple criteria:

  • the areas examined are Italy, France and Spain;
  • the period under review is between 2010 and 2014;
  • the contributions examined must have a number of pages exceeding 5;
  • they have not been included articles devoted to the analysis of individual libraries;
  • they were included items articles devoted to cooperation between public libraries;
  • in the bibliography are also articles published in monographs or conference proceedings.
  • authors who have written contributions on public libraries in several languages, were placed according to their nationality;
  • the item of bibliography are arranged in alphabetical order.

2The research was carried out on line, using the following OPACs and other search engines, for example: Karlsruher Virtuelle Katalog (KVK), Bibliothèque nationale de France (BNF), Biblioteca Nacional de España (BNE), Servizio Bibliotecario Nazionale (SBN), and Internet sites of serial such as Catalogo Italiano dei Periodici (ACNP). These are the magazines surveyed, subdivided by national areas:
