Robert Krulwich: Who Left A Tree, Then A Coffin In The Library?
"Last spring, Julie Johnstone, a librarian at the Scottish Poetry Library in Edinburgh, was wandering through a reading room when she saw, sitting alone on a random table, a little tree."

Neat story of anonymously made artwork appearing in a library.

The Post-Library School “Gap” Year (or two or three)
Well, you did everything you were supposed to do. You researched schools, found the best fit. ... So, now what? You’ve got a head full of knowledge, the eagerness of a spring lamb and fingers just itching to process boxes and folders of documents, ephemera and other archival materials, just twitching to type up finding aids.

A librarian for news
A news orga­ni­za­tion is not unlike a library in many ways. It is an infor­ma­tion fun house. The sheer quan­tity and qual­ity of infor­ma­tion con­tained in the archives of a major news orga­ni­za­tion is stag­ger­ing. What’s miss­ing, though, is a guide who can help us nav­i­gate all of this data.

In Praise of the News Librarian

At the crossroads of journalists and librarians, we find community engagement
The basic idea is that these groups of people share a common mission of improving their communities through information. Say all you want about journalistic cynicism and profit-chasing. I believe most of the journalists I’ve had the pleasure to work with would say they got into the news biz because they feel like it’s a way of making the world a better place, whether they’re doing that by improving democracy or building connections through storytelling.

CRL Report Describes Digital Newspaper Production
This report provides a vivid glimpse inside the workplaces that produce what – not long ago – we would have called newspapers. As digital news-gathering and production methods proliferate, and as digital avenues for distribution emerge, these workplaces are being transformed in profound ways, with electronic facsimiles and websites (and probably more) overtaking the paper format.

NPR: How Librarians Can Save The World
Say the word "librarian," and most people conjure up a frumpy, bespectacled woman shushing people — Marion the Librarian. The image is outdated, Marilyn Johnson argues in her impassioned celebration of librarians and archivists, cleverly titled This Book Is Overdue. Johnson is a former magazine editor and the author of The Dead Beat: Lost Souls, Lucky Stiffs, and the Perverse Pleasures of Obituaries — another wittily titled appreciation of another underappreciated art. She is no stranger to research — and just how helpful a good librarian can be in navigating the overwhelming, "madly multiplying beast of exploding information."

Does it Pay to Hire a Law Firm Librarian?
Although unsure about the value of a physical library, they favored having a librarian, noting that “finding essential information is more important than ever. When you live in a value free world, someone who finds the right information efficiently is really valuable.” While I would debate their assumption that all the resources lawyers need are available online, they are right to recognize that “the role of the librarian is becoming more critical as the volume of information in the world grows.”
