Hello, there. This is the place where I collect things that I enjoy. I hope you get some enjoyment out of them, also.

 

SOS: Librarian types?

I have a very exciting meeting in a few hours with an art librarian at a major Chicago museum, and I have a lot of questions for her, but what I’m wondering is:

What do you wish people would ask you about working in a library? This is particularly a special collections place, but patron services are never not relevant. We’ve been trying to get this meeting set up since May so I want to use this time as best I can.

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ALL YOUR HELP.

Tumblarians never disappoint.

I don’t mean to nitpick, but UI was the State University of Iowa, not Iowa State University. 

It is only 1868, it was called many things.  I typed it as it was written on the top of the issue.  No wonder people still confuse the two.


THAT IS SO COOL, THANK YOU!
You definitely learn something new every day when you follow libraries and librarians on Tumblr.
