The author suggests that in the increasing effort to define, and refine, their identity and image, librarians have recently turned towards computers - and away from books and microforms. The result has been an avoidance of the more important issues facing librarians - such as ownership, accessibility, cost, and preservation of new formats of information - and an ever greater obfuscation of what constitutes the profession of librarianship.
