Libraries are always in the news

The press plays a huge part in forming public perception of libraries, positive and negative. Here, for the first time, is an analysis of that reporting.

1 October 2014

In a new book, Libraries and Public Perception: A Comparative Analysis of the Europen Press, Anna Galluzzi takes the press to task on the quality and quantity of coverage.

Summary:

What is the future of libraries? This question is frequently posed, with widespread research into the social and economic impact of libraries. Newspapers play an important role in forming public perceptions, but how do newspapers present libraries, their past, present and future? Nobody has yet taken the press to task on the quantity and quality of articles on libraries. Libraries and Public Perception does just this, through comparative textual analysis of newspapers in Europe.

Anna Galluzzi works as a Parliamentary Administrator and Librarian at the Senate Library in Rome, Italy. She holds degrees in Conservation of Cultural Heritage, Library and Information Science, and a PhD from the University of Udine. Anna has taught Library and Information Science at the University of Rome.
