That image thing again …

ON a Sunday night last month at Daddy’s, a bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, more than a dozen people in their 20s and 30s gathered at a professional soiree, drinking frozen margaritas and nibbling store-bought cookies. With their thrift-store inspired clothes and abundant tattoos, they looked as if they could be filmmakers, Web designers, coffee shop purveyors or artists.

Of course, you can tell from the title … they are librarians.

Ms. Campbell added that she became a librarian because it “combined a geeky intellectualism” with information technology skills and social activism. [A Hipper Crowd of Shushers – New York Times]

Update: via Darth Libris (I thought, but I cannot immediately see where) I read this relevant post by the Lipstick Librarian.

Library leaders should be drawn from across the organization. Any idea that technology leaders are overly specialised or too distant from general library work is outmoded and counter-productive.
