Things are hard in library land right now, we get that! So, if you have been feeling the least bit gloomy about your future as a librarian, you need to read this piece. It appeared recently in Library Journal, and was authored by Barbara Fister, librarian at Gustavus Adolphus College. Barbara cites ten reasons she loves being a librarian, and it is a refreshing reminder of what is positive and noble about this profession. The post is called Ten Easy Pieces: The Profession of Librarianship. I hope you come away feeling as hopeful and refreshed as I did. Enjoy!
