Librarians with personal commitment, a “code,” do not play follow the leader. They do not take orders as hacks, apologists, or nitpickers. Their responsibility is not to any power structure at all, but to the patron and to the profession. True professionalism implies evolution, if not revolution; those who “profess” a calling have certain goals and standards for improving existence, which necessarily means moving, shaking, transforming it.
