Abstract

“Dismantling our fortress that was the reference desk and our citadel known as the circulation desk” these are some of the steps public libraries are taking in the name of customer service. The purpose of this research is to answer the question: “if the public library blossomed in the era of Fordism, what are the identifying features of the post-Fordest library?

Au nom du service à la clientèle, certaines bibliothèques publiques ont entreprise de « démanteler la forteresse que constitue le poste de référence et la citadelle que constitue le bureau de prêt ». L'objectif de cette recherche est de répondre à la question: « Si la bibliothèque publique s'est développée à l'ère du fordisme, quelle sont les caractéristiques distinctives de la bibliothèque post-fordiste? »
