This work, a compilation of essays by library professionals, consists of eight topical chapters covering all aspects of Scilken's contribution to the public library world, including the history and contents of The U*L, his achievements as library director, a summary of his accomplishments within the context of ALA, examples of his resolutions and communications, a summary of ideas for promotional use of library materials, his work mentoring, and supporting individual librarians, and his views on ethical professional service. An important read for library students and information professionals, and for individuals active in ALA.
