1262 Photos, 36 Countries, and Two Years Later – This Is What A Librarian Looks Like

Today is the 2 year anniversary of the launch of This is What a Librarian Looks Like! Submissions have slowed down after the last year but we still added over 500 new photos! That’s right! There are 1,294 photos from 36 different countriesWe have had over 70,000 followers on Tumblr! 

This is what a librarian looks like

What I’ve learned:

Tumblr is great for submission, but terrible for indexing, searching, or just data period.

Librarians rock! They are fire dancers, fire breathers, runners, swimmers, bicyclists, zombies, fairies, roller derby divas, football players, foodies, skiers, beer lovers, whiskey and gin drinkers. They come from all over the world, in all shapes, sizes, ages, races, and ethnicities.
