Nice Friday Niceness

I found this via my friend Ruth Kneale who does so much good work and writing on the image of librarians.

For the Love of Laura

“Laura Warner has written a great post at Critics at Large about the wonders of the librarian, “Far More Than Shushing and Checking Out Books: For the Love of Librarians and Public Libraries”. This is the kind of thing we need to be shouting at the congregation: we are fabulous and can find you anything!

To quote: “To put this plainly, librarians are surgeons with the Internet. They are specially trained to know how to find anything you need in cyberspace, how to locate the best answer and get it fast. They’re ready and waiting. They are the emergency-response personnel to all your information needs.”

Check it out.
