This is a very brief ‘thing 2’ since (as mentioned in my previous post) I unofficially spied on other people’s blogging activities first.
So just a short list of interesting things that my anthropological study of librarians in their natural habitat has taught me:
- First of all, and most importantly of course, ALL Librarians love tea. This is in any library-based job description.
- It is amazing how many varied career paths people have taken. And it’s lovely to see that they have chosen to settle in Librarianship (and their reasons for doing so)
- I love reading about people who are doing unconventional library and information jobs. This is great for someone who’s just starting out like me, as I struggle to focus my mind on any one subject for an extended amount of time, so it’s encouraging to know that Librarianship offers many diverse options.
- All the blogs I have read so far have been really interesting, and people have approached library blogging from lots of different angles – anything from giving advice, to describing their day or just giving an opinion.
That’s it for thing 2. I’m still procrastinating about thing 3…
