  5. Librarians’ values are as sound as Girl Scouts’: truth, free speech, and universal literacy. And, like Scouts, they possess a quality that I think makes librarians invaluable and indispensable: they want to help. They want to help us. They want to be of service. And they’re not trying to sell us anything.

"Look, I… I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, Mr. O’Connell, but I am proud of what I am”

Your Thursday Librarian Pride!

  13. Read what you want.

    — 

    As librarians, we will never judge you.  We would never judge you.  We sideeye those who do.

    In response to THAT article, and in solidarity with the sentiments over here (at the New Republic) and over here (with NSFW language, a bit, at Jezebel).

    I don’t give a shit what you read!  Erotica?  I’ll get it for you.  Obscure manga?  OCLC to the rescue.  That one book with the blue cover and the thingy?  I will go down a black research hole for you and then I will put a hold on it.

    LIBRARIANS HAVE NO SHAME.  WE DON’T CARE.

    Surprise! Here is our book cover for The Librarian Stereotype: Deconstructing Perceptions and Presentations of Information Work with ACRL Press.

    The cover was designed by Dorothy Gambrell of Cat and Girl and Very Small Array! We are so excited to have Dorothy as our cover artist. She based the design on Bureau of Labor Statistics data about librarians, so it’s an infographic of how librarians are categorized, according to the BLS.

    The second image is part of our invitation for our book release party at the 2014 ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas. We will be having a champagne toast + cupcakes at 9:30pm as part of the After Hours Party. More details will be released as we get closer to #alaac14. Hope you’ll join us! 

    Not one but TWO of our very own librarians at UIC have chapters in this book, Isabel Gonzalez-Smith and Annie Pho. Congrats you guys - we can’t wait to check it out!

    If you’re going to ALA, don’t miss the book release party.
