 A significant percentage of current library literature focuses on the technological advances stemming almost exclusively from the internet.  Michael Gorman, in his book Our Enduring Values Revisited, 2015, invites libraries and librarians to reflect on the library as a whole, for a realistic assessment of those “noble” traditions, enduring values and best practices that make libraries one of the pillars of the academic community.

This paper will discuss Gorman’s ranking of those values and traditions and critically evaluate their importance to the future of the academic library in a small liberal arts university.
