Hello All,

Happy Thursday! I wanted to share a nice article in the Librarian Wardrobe project that speaks highly of our specialized area of librarianship.

Kudos to Rachel for a great read and not-well-known-glimpse into Academic Military Libraries!

Rachael Elrod is a Reference and Instruction Librarian at The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina. She has been in this position since August 2010. Prior to working at The Citadel she was a Library Assistant at the University of Louisville while working on her MSLS from the University of Kentucky

That is a fun new project. I'd also suggest looking at Librarian Wardrobe,, which has been a sensation the past year. There are great interviews along with the self-submissions.

For anyone with 5 minutes on their hands, here is a good interview about the intent of the project via one of the dedicated volunteers, Erica Findley:

Fellow Documents Enthusiasts,

A couple of librarians have started a photo blog called This is What a Librarian Looks Like at It was inspired by a similar blog called "This is What a Scientist Looks Like." Here's some info from the invitation at


What: a site to go beyond the bun and challenge old, outdated librarian stereotypes with photos of real librarians in their real lives doing real stuff

Who: YOU! The site is up and running and ready for submissions. So find a picture that you think best represents you to the world and submit it! Please don't submit photos of others and be tasteful! This is a fun, light-hearted project, please approach it in that spirit!


You're also invited to share your name, title, institution and something about your work and/or personal life, but that is up to you.

I think it would be great to see bundles of documents staff submit photos here. If you're so inclined, visit and submit a photo. You can find mine at
