Who we are?

A recent article entitled “A Hipper Crowd of Shushers” by Kara Jesella for the New York Times (access via InfoTrac; reguires RegisNET login) has created a lot of buzz among librarians with its description of an emerging young and “hip” generation of librarians. Librarians have always been sensitive to the stereotype associated with the profession, you know the one: the gray haired, bespectacled, sweater wearing librarian with the steely eyed prohibitive glare and who’s favorite word is “Shhhuush!”. This article, and the response it has amassed, got me thinking that this would be a great time to open the discussion to you, the students. Please tell us, what are your perceptions of librarians and the library?

P.B.
