Libraries have a vast and specific vocabulary. We speak librarian with each other and with our patrons.
We are a culture of multitaskers.
Technology always brings with it a learning curve.
Libraries have worked hard to be accessible to the communities we serve.
We are seeing a lot of buzz about Big Data. The ability to collect massive amounts of data, finding patterns and trends is allowing us to see ourselves, our communities, cultures, and subcultures, as never before.
Libraries are in the midst of change, big change. Library professionals often have to address the most basic of basics: funding, staffing, resources.
Library work is fun. In my first year as a professional in the library field, I was working at Walnut Public Library in Southern California.
