So What is This About, Anyway?

No Stereotypes! Welcome to the site, a collection of talks and resources relating to the image and perception of librarians in the Internet age. Past talks, recent columns, and articles of interest from around the world are collected here... if you've seen such a thing and it's not here, let me know!

The Book

YDLLAL: The Book You Don't Look Like a Librarian! Shattering Stereotypes and Building Positive New Images in the Internet Age is now available for order from Information Today. The companion web site is also available.


The Column

I write a column for Marketing Library Services Newsletter called "Spectacles: How Pop Culture Views Librarians." The articles are available here 90 days after publication.

Blog Entries

Super Librarian There is a supplementary blog to this site called "Random Musings from the Desert". However, it is primarily at this point an archive of past information and discussions.



I have moved most of the active postings and discussions over to my Facebook page, also called "You Don't Look Like a Librarian!" Please come join the conversation there!
