Responding to Gorman

Nov - 30 - 2005

The Free Range Librarian has a great post that I just read entitled: Speaking Truth to Power: An Action Plan for Responding to Gorman. We should all follow this plan so that the general public knows what we're thinking.

Schneider recommnds that we:

* Write the reporter(s) who wrote the article and explain that Gorman is not speaking for ALA or librarianship in general. Point the reporters toward the plethora of posts about Gorman, including the summaries on LISNews.

* Post a response to Gorman on your blog, and link to the newspaper article from your website. Then cc the reporters.

* Send a letter to the editor at the newspaper he is quoted in. Stay on message: Gorman doesn't represent ALA; Gorman doesn't represent librarianship.
