News! About libraries! And news librarians! And more!|
In the uncertain newsroom of today, a lot of errors are getting made (and published); this is just one story among many, many others.
Another reason news librarians are useful: they might help you track down potential Cold War spies! This is a neat story; my favorite part is how a date was pinned down using the paper's sunrise and sunset times.
There is the Biblioburro in Colombia, mentioned here before, and there is also a camel library service in Kenya. I think there could be a lot of variations on this concept.
Librarians can inspire people...even via their obituaries?
My library school alma mater is talking about eliminating their school media (i.e. school librarian) program. Weird. I always thought that was the most popular specialization there.
And finally, a post in Apartment Therapy suggests you make bookshelves out of your ceiling rafters. (Keep in mind that this post originated in Los Angeles and may not be taking leaky ceilings or weight limits into consideration...)
