1. Meditation on Being a Librarian in Public →

    patrondebris:

    Last week, a non-librarian that I interact with occasionally on Twitter sent me a direct message to ask if I could look something up for her that she’d had no luck finding herself online. We don’t talk much, but she knows I’m a librarian. This is what being a librarian in public should be—helping people understand that the library is a resource waiting for them to make use of it. Reminding people that libraries still exist, and that they’re pretty damn cool. That’s why I’m going to keep tweeting from the trenches, and following people who do the same. As far as I’m concerned, they’re the real rock star librarians.
