This blog started for the project I am a Librarian! It gave detail the project progress. It will now focus on discussions of the image of the librarian and my interactions with librarians and library staffers as well as cool information that I think could be useful to others.

Conan...A realistic stereotype???

While reading over surveys today, I was reminded of the Conan the Librarian Cartoon and that variable image of the librarian.

I have only have a few librarians that might fit this image. I think the closest is Chad Eng. Isn't it great that we have this type of diversity in the profession? Chad definitely defies the view of the librarians that I have seen in the surveys and that in most media.

Chad is a great librarian and a really interesting guy. I think that it is wonderful to see that people can stay true to themselves in our profession. How many librarians that you know are in hard rock bands?
