Librarian Wardrobe

My Adventures in Library Instruction comrades and I were featured on the Librarian Wardrobe blog today. If you're dying to know how we dress for work, and why, you're in luck!

(Spoiler alert: bowling shirts and slacks.)


PodCastle: In the House of the Seven Librarians

For fun on a Friday:

This week the fantasy fiction podcast Podcastle published In the House of the Seven Librarians, a fairy tale about a foundling raised in the Carnegie Library.  Don't look for it to break any stereotypes about librarians being fussy women with hair buns, but... it's a fairy tale.  That's not what it's for.  Enjoy.


Librarian superheroes

Wow, I started a meme!

A committee at work was writing a sample letter to faculty, and we signed it "Librarian X."  Naturally, some of us started speculating that Librarian X must be a superhero, and at the end of the day I whipped up a picture of him on Heromachine to send out.

Here he is, fighting information illiteracy wherever it may occur: Librarian X!

Naturally, my colleague protested that he's male; fair enough, given the demographics of our profession.  I was instructed to make a female version (Librarian XX, to go with this Librarian XY).  I haven't gotten around to it yet.  Maybe they're a duo?

The other members of the Library League that I know of:

Librarian By Day

My Secret Identity

Alter Ego (I like his steampunky edge)

Book Girl

W!cKed (Intimidating!)

Drop a comment if you want me to link you here.  Ex Libris and Excelsior!

Edit: Created a Flickr pool!  More librarian heroes there!
