Most chapters are formed from a reminiscence that represents an important lesson in being a librarian or library manager, and that in one way or another projects its relevance into the future of librarianship.

As the author notes in his Preface, libraries also need to be re-membered, that is, taken apart, examined, and reassembled in order to reach the new levels of service that will be required in the future barreling toward us. Among the many topics discussed are fund-raising, libraries as research institutions, library buildings for the 21st century, digitization in 21st-century academic libraries, globalizing American librarianship, and library education reform.
