Remembering Arthur Clement Pulling as This Year's National Library Week Celebration Approaches Its Conclusion
"This week is National Library Week," writes Nova Southeastern law prof Jim Levy. "To observe the week, I would like to commemorate the work of a largely forgotten hero in the world of law librarians." That would be Arthur Clement Pulling. After identifying Pulling's substantial contributions to academic law librarianship, Levy asks:
How likely is it that today someone without credentials but lots of creativity could make a mark in the world of legal education? Has the demand for credentials shut out truly innovative people?
That's a damn good question to conclude this year's National Library Week. Interested? See Levy's National Library Week: The Legend of Arthur Pulling on Legal Skills Prof Blog. [JH]
"I would like to commemorate the work of a largely forgotten hero in the world of law librarians."
Do the words "hero" and "law librarian" belong in the same sentence? Seriously.
