Neat quote on librarianship and reputations

Posted on: October 25, 2010

This is in the context of the lack of academic rigor in library schools and the fact that the librarians who distinguish themselves in spite of said library schools often do so via online social media. I also noticed the quote as I was finishing a recent blog post about librarians who build their reputations online and look down on those who don’t.

These days librarians don’t even have the excuse of no travel funding. Reputations are made online. Look at me. I’ve earned the ire of half the profession, and I don’t even exist!” — from the Annoyed Librarian.
