Last night I started browsing youtube for images and representations of librarians. Of course I’m guessing most of us are familiar with the Australian series “The Librarians”. Here’s two little somethings I found highly amusing. Both of them engage with the stereotypes out there about libraries and librarians. This one from Community is short and sweet with the wonderful line “maybe if we’re too loud she’ll shush us”
The second one from Mitchell and Webb is “nice” if only because it shows how a library’s information program (i.e basic borrowing record) can be used for insult and evil. Something to enjoy on a Sunday morning 🙂
It seems as though some television scriptwriters need a catch-up on the changing role of the librarian in the 21st century world of Web 2.0?
