A recent article in the New York Times ‘A Hipper Crowd of Shushers‘ has triggered a debate about cool librarians.
Michael Temchine for The New York Times – NEW SPIN An interest in social activism and music led Pete Welsch, a D.J., to library school.
It reminded me about my search for the coolest librarian, and the one with the coolest job, at each SLA Annual Conference I attend.
So far, the first is currently held by a librarian who is a drummer in a moderately successful death metal rock band. The second has to be the librarian at Cirque du Soleil who’s job it was to research for and visit new acts for the company.
All suggestions gratefully received.
