Care to tell us why you’re a librarian?

why

Take the short answer survey. It’s merely three questions.

Also, do you as new librarian, (or new information professional), care to say why you got into the profession when parts of the world see libraries and librarians as relics from an era-gone-by?

You probably have meme-fatigued. That “geez, this question is turning up everywhere!” It’s a good one though. We can strengthen our resolve on what we believe by answering questions like this. How so? 1) Sharpen our own minds about what is important to us. 2) Strengthen solid ideas about our chosen profession by sharing our best thoughts. Mr. Shaw said this quite succinctly.

“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.—George Bernard Shaw
