“A Day in the Life of a Library”

Something interesting from today’s “American Libraries Direct” email:

Librarians and other library staff are encouraged to participate in this project:  “A Day in the Life of a Library.”  Simply blog about what you do every day, then post the URL of your blog to the project’s wiki (so everyone can find your blog.)  As the organizers say, “it’s a great way for students who are interested in the library profession to see what we really do.”

I think it would be great if a bunch of “library technicians” and “library assistants”  participated.  Let the world see what “paraprofessionals” or “nonprofessional” library staff do all day!  After all, we vastly outnumber the “real librarians.”    🙂


At the time I checked the wiki, there were 28 people signed up — and only 2 with job titles that don’t sound like MLS-holders.  So we should all throw in our 2 cents worth!
