We've Got Mail!
We recently received an email from reader Kara M:
Hi, sorry to bother you, but my name is Kara and I ran across your page while doing some research for my lesson plan. I teach a course on information science and I am not really a typical librarian so I like to find resources on librarian stereotypes to talk about with my class. Your page has been a great resource for me!
Sorry to bother us? Perish the thought! We love kudos. And while we're on the topic of librarian stereotypes, you might want to look at the Hollywood Librarian project, an on-going examination of librarian stereotypes by the Stuart Hall Library and the Institute of International Visual Arts. Their blog focuses on the image of libraries and librarians in film and provides a bibliography for further research.
