Bibliographic note

This book draws on 10 years of research on the history of libraries, including two studies that used ethnographic methods and a comprehensive literature review. One study is the author's dissertation research in Hawaii (1997-1999) and the other (1999-2003) was a national study on the same topic. Additionally, from 2004-2006 the author conducted a secondary analysis of both studies, examined research on immigrant use of public libraries, interviewed policy makers, researchers, educators, and librarians, and collected data on model programmes. The book is written in a practical style to appeal to a wider audience, including academics. The book has been promoted on various library-based web-sites.
