Chrystie Hill – “When I was in library school, I read The Social Life of Documents (published in the first issue of first monday, May 1996) and it changed me.”
For me professionally, it was Future libraries : dreams, madness & reality
For me personally, it was Man’s Search for Meaning.

“Paradise Lost” by Milton — because it taught me that if I didn’t “get” something the first time, that I should go over it again, and that if it still didn’t make sense, that I should go over it a third time.
It was only with the third attempt of reading “Paradise Lost”, that the poetry of the work — the powerful poetry of the work — began speaking to me.
I was young but it was an important lesson for me.
Thanks for picking out the important part of my “response” to the whole AL “scandal”. What a nice way to redirect the conversation!
Personal – Lord of the Rings, when I was 11, in 1958. Changed my life then, still is, always will.
Professional – F.W. Lancaster’s Vocabulary Control, in library school in 1972. It’s why I was a cataloguer, why I did a Ph/D., why I and am a teacher of things to do with subject analysis, metadata, etc.
Chrystie: II’m all for changing the subject. 😉
