"I’m studying to be a librarian."
"What’s the sexiest part about being a librarian?"
"I’d say the width of our knowledge. The rest of academia seems to have a rather specific focal point, whereas librarians need to know enough to serve as a guide for researchers of every discipline."

Her answer is so on-point. Well played, library school student, well played.

I like to say, “I don’t know, the sexiest part of being a librarian is just whatever is sexy about me, because I am just a normal person who happens to be in a fetishized profession.”*
*I haven’t ever actually said that. I just laugh. But now I’m going to be prepared. I also like her answer.
** i am assuming this humans of new york guy doesn’t ask every person “what’s the sexiest part about being ___?”

Wildcats run late night TV! Congrats to Stephen Colbert on his five-year deal to take over The Late Show! Full story

NU grads will have two of the five network late night spots. Not saying that we’re taking over, but… we’re totally taking over.

I don’t know what it is!

I didn’t either before I started this training! Basically, it’s a marketing materials maker for libraries to use. As a person who makes marketing materials to begin with (well, theoretically. Not quite there yet with this job) this just seems so… formulaic. Which I guess is very good for some libraries, but as the person who DOES this, it makes me feel a little weird. It’s from Ebsco.

Any librarians out there using Library Aware? I’m doing a training on it right now and I’m, uh, lukewarm, to say the least.

Let’s just remember that Jimmy Carter founded the Carter Center, became a leader in Habitat for Humanity, and won a Nobel Peace Prize. Bill Clinton founded the Clinton Global Initiative, became best friends with Bono, and supported his amazing wife in her career as a senator and Secretary of State.
But this is good too. My mom likes the one in the bottom right corner.
