A lot of people seem to be enjoying this NYT Magazine article about new-era librarians (A Hipper Crowd Of Shushers): “With so much of the job involving technology and with a focus now on finding and sharing information beyond just what is available in books, a new type of librarian is emerging — the kind that, according to the Web site Librarian Avengers, is “looking to put the ‘hep cat’ in cataloguing.” There are an increasing number of librarians who are notable not just for their pink-streaked hair but also for their passion for pop culture, activism and technology.”
