  2. 2. Evans, Woody. "What drives you?(NEXTGEN)(librarianship)." Library Journal 132.20 (Dec 1, 2007): 84(1). “ One is a desire to organize information so that they're in greater control of an unpredictable world. To those motivated by this drive, librarianship is a duty because the world is an unpredictable place badly in need of order .”
  3. 3. “ The second drive is rooted in the need to offer users better access to information. For those motivated by this drive, the world will never be fully cataloged; librarianship is a duty because we want to empower people with the tools and knowledge to find and order information in ways that work for them.”
