Guess who has a wish to be a librarian?
Yep, Keith Richards. He describes how being a librarian would be his dream job in this article from Times Online. How cool is that?
This post from Information Spaces, a blog from SLIS at Syracuse compares Rock Stars and Librarians. My favorite comparison:
- Rock star: Has great hair.
- Librarian: Has great hair hidden in a bun, until she takes it down after ripping off her glasses and opening a button and kicking off her sensible shoes. At least, that’s what happens in the movies. Unless the librarian is a man, in which case they turn into a ninja or an adventurer or something when they get out of work. Or Batgirl. Which is JUST like a rock star.
See librarianship is a wicked cool career!
