Calvin College. (n.d.). Where research will happen: The Traditional library [Website]. Retrieved from http://www.calvin.edu/academic/rit/webBook/chapter4/Sec1/tradlib/.WebsiteThe traditional library has received some bad press over the past few years. It's been described as archaic, primitive, and outdated. Some futurists have even predicted its demise. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, from 1996 through 2000, communities in the United States spent $3 billion renovating or building public libraries, and the purchase of paper books and journals continues at a steady pace. The physical library, along with its physical collection, is an essential and important component of any community, whether that community is a city, a school, or a corporation. physical spaces and collectionhttp://www.calvin.edu/academic/rit/webBook/chapter4/Sec1/tradlib/

Retrieved from http://meredith.wolfwater.com/wordpress/2013/04/24/diy-vs-startup-or-false-dichotomies-and-labels/.BlogThere were people at the DIY session who were talking about destruction or rebellion, but it wasn’t the totality or even the majority of the conversation (I can only think of two people in the session who really used that sort of rhetoric, but my memory is by no means photographic). I think most people were looking to find creative ways to do innovative things within traditional hierarchies.hierarchicalhttp://meredith.wolfwater.com/wordpress/2013/04/24/diy-vs-startup-or-false-dichotomies-and-labels/

Gorman, M. (2000). Our enduring values: Librarianship in the 21st century. Chicago: American Library Association.BookI use the word "traditional" with great reluctance and simply for want of anything better--its pejorative overtones of clinging to the past, of being place-centered and exclusively book-centered, bear no relationship to the experience of modern libraries....[M]y idea of a "traditional library" is one that selects, collects, and gives access to all the forms of recorded knowledge and information that are relevant to its mission and to the needs of the community it serves, and assists and instructs in the use of those resources....The conflict between "traditional" libraries and "virtual" libraries turns out, under examination, to be an elaborate kabuki dance choreographed carefully by those who think that real libraries are obsolescent.31-32physical spaces and collection, or redefined as collections and access in any formhttp://books.google.com/books?id=QxKeNfB7rP0C&lpg=PA32&dq=%22traditional%20library%22&pg=PA1#v=onepage&q=%22traditional%20library%22&f=false

Gray, S. (2013). Locating librarianship’s identity in its historical roots of professional philosophies: towards a radical new identity for librarians of today (and tomorrow). IFLA Journal, 39(1), 37-44. doi:10.1177/0340035212472946ArticleHere, then, it is possible to trace the origins of many of the skills that ‘librarians’ of today in fact recognize as being classic facets of the profession’s identity, such as cataloguing, indexing, and classification, which,while the CILIP report acknowledges these as‘‘[t]he more ‘traditional’ librarianship skills’’ too, it finds that they are now ‘‘used by a smaller proportion; cataloguing and classification skills are employed by just under half of those completing this survey, and indexing skills are used by a quarter’’ (CILIP2010:37)....It is also demonstrative of these new, non-traditional library services that they are predominantly interested in ‘socially engaging’, reaching out to the community quite literally by going to the places where this increasingly mobile community is directly located, rather than waiting for it to come to them.38, 43passive / waiting for patrons to come to them; cataloging, indexing, classification (as librarian skills)http://cwi.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=lxh&AN=86386501&site=ehost-live&scope=site

Washington, DC: Council on Library and Information Resources.BookThe library of the future will be less a place where information is kept than a portal through which students and faculty will access the vast information resources of the world. This new library needs to bring together scholars and information resources without necessarily bringing either one to a physical building with a card catalog and books....

Kirker, M. (2013, May 6). Tradition and the rhetoric of the modern library [Blog post]. Retrieved from http://maoriakirker.wordpress.com/2013/05/06/tradition-and-rhetoric/.Blog“We need to stop using the word ‘traditional.’ People often use that word and it generally implies something as static, but libraries have always been the opposite. We’re dynamic institutions, always changing.” In many ways, our tradition has been change – adapting to the needs of our users in an ever-evolving world, which is now highly defined by technology. As a profession, we understand this, but if an outsider was looking in, it’s my opinion that they’d hear the word “traditional” and apply the age-old stereotype of The Music Man‘s Marian the Librarian....They hear the word “traditional” and think static.

Lacy, D. (1969). The Traditional library. The Library Quarterly, 39(1), 13-22.ArticleThe original, we may properly say "traditional," pattern of library service in the United States was based on a relative immobility of users and of materials and on a political system that looked to local sources of support for social services of all kinds.... Perhaps the principal function of the library was to afford the user access to the standard literature and history of Western culture....Most library services in fact are, will continue to be, and can only efficiently be offered by the use of material physically brought together in the library. This traditional pattern is, will be, and should be the backbone of library service. 13, 15, 22physical materialshttp://cwi.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://www.jstor.org/stable/4305950

ArticleThe digital environment, however, has transformed the passive sense of a building with books, which was in effect an information monopoly over which the user had little control, into an environment where the user has numerous choices, and the librarians themselves have numerous choices as to how to procure, deliver, and archive information. A single fixed system, either physical or bibliographic, will not work in the face of the flood of available content; moreover, users expect to be able to interact in a dynamic way with information...passive, physical spaces and resources, fixedhttp://cwi.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=ehh&AN=34731405&site=ehost-live&scope=site

-emphasis on storage and preservation of physical items, particularly books and periodicals
-cataloging at a high level rather than one of detail, e.g., author and subject indexes as opposed to full text
-browsing based on physical proximity of related materials, e.g., books on sociology are near one another on the shelves
-passivity; information is physically assembled in one place; users must travel to the library to learn what is there and make use of it
