Save Wasserman

This space is being created for the community of information professionals and allied community members interested in following the unfolding story about the Paul Wasserman Library (PWL) at the University of Maryland's College of Information Studies (

The Save Wasserman community needs non-University of Maryland virtual space to conduct its conversations because the current intellectual infrastructure at the university is unable to accomodate free and open conversation for the achievement of its own educational mission.

Please feel free, and I mean free, to express yourself here anonymously or not. Censorship is the only thing forbidden in this experimental virtual space. Advocacy in the information profession needs to undergo a revolution equal to the cultural changes in the society in which it operates and strives to serve. The Internet world brings structural changes that require new learning opportunities, and the Save Wasserman blog is one way to begin that work.
