Yes I am a Digital Branch Manager, No I Do Not Regularly Build Bonfires of Print Books in My Backyard & Dance Around Wearing Warpaint

Not regularly, actually, not ever.  I keep seeing the perception that by going digital, being aware of and, gasp! even using technology means that librarians and libraries are throwing aside traditionally services in favor of sexy new toys like Twitter.  That in order for a library to have a Facebook profile first we have sacrifice […]

What’s the matter with our profession?

It’s a question many of us with an MLS,  and those without, struggle with.  Just take a look at the Library Day in the Life blog entries.  You’ll see a wide, and I mean WIDE, range of variety in how we spend our days, weeks and years and our education levels. Matt Hamilton wrote a […]
