No. We're not channeling our inner David Bowie (but for a dose of Bowie, take a break with Changes). The library world is an ever-evolving conundrum that leaves those passionate about the field both inspired and terrified. Personally, I like change. I like figuring out what could be and putting together a crazy scheme that might just get my department, my community, and my library as a whole to this new a bright future. But I often look back at my seven years of professional librarianship and am speechless by 1) what no one bothered to teach me and 2) how crazy different my job looks now.
So that's what we tackled in this week's The Librarian Way. How has your position changed? What are you doing differently? What's now on your priority list? And what didn't library school prepare you for?
