33 reasons librarians are still extremely important
33 reasons librarians are still extremely important:
A no-nonsense list, good for any sort of situation. My favorites are 24) The internet is subject to manipulation, and 32) Libraries are a stopgap to anti-intellectualism. [thanks forrest]
i know several anti-intellectual and more sinister anti-academic oriented librarians in training. they seem to have a strong negative feeling for anything they see as not immediately applicable, and or ‘academic’, ‘theoretic’. This is a tragedy of the ‘professional’ school certification and training, i think.
