Sometimes you get bogged down by your own career’s stereotypes.
Such as when I was in Library school, and had to explain to students I met from elsewhere that: yes… it’s an education, and yes, it takes three years to get a bachelor’s and two years after that to get a master’s. And no, we don’t have special class on learning the alphabet. (Though, this one time we did, but that was ironic, and a student presentation, and not at all in the lesson plan)
Or the cranky old lady who hushes people. I aspire to be her, I really do, but for now my library is free to speak in.
That’s when it’s good to see this kind of link being passed around: 20 heroic librarians who save the world.
I think of this kind of librarianship every time I see a librarian’s position being posted at CERN – anyone else?
