There was a time when nearly every person connected to the library world was familiar with the newsletter, The U*N*A*B*A*S*H*E*D Librarian. It was without question, and possibly still is, one of the most influential publications to cross the librarian's desk. Filled with articles and editorial asides promoting the importance of public libraries within the community framework, this newsletter was the brainchild of Marvin Scilken, a public library director and perennial American Library Association councilor-at-large. Scilken was named one of the 100 most influential librarians of the century, and this book celebrates his legacy of commitment to public library service that has influenced a generation of information professionals.

This compilation of essays by library professionals consists of eight topical chapters covering all aspects of his contribution to the public library world.

Includes:
- The history and contents of The U*L
- His achievements as library director
- A summary of his accomplishments within the context of the ALA
- Examples of his resolutions and communications
- His ideas for promotional use of library materials
- His work mentoring individual librarians
- His views on ethical professional service
- A biographical profile on Marvin's life history
- A short essay on his writings and influence.

Unlike other festschrifts, this book devotes an entire chapter to Scilken's famous one-liners and reflections that found their way into his quarterly newsletter.

Review:

The book is comprehensively indexed...Interesting, and indeed inspirational. Provides valuable insights from Marvin Scilken's long career as a passionate advocate for American libraries. (Australian Library Journal)

Read the book to learn a bit about ALA Council and about some of the issues libraries have faced during the past thirty years. Read the book to meet or remember a colleague who had a unique voice and was an advocate for library patrons, our profession, and for 'getting libraries the credit they deserve.' (Serials Review)

Every aspect of [Scilken's] vast contributions to the library world is covered in these essays by his peers...A must for professional library collections. (Public Library Quarterly)

This book is a Godsend...Techies and technophobes alike should make room on their desks for Getting Libraries the Credit They Deserve. Marvin's legacy is a gift to all of us, and hats off to Roy and Cherian for their efforts to preserve it. (Free Range Librarian)
