“What could be scarier than dressing as a zombie for Halloween? How about dressing as a zombie librarian, coming after those overdue books from beyond the grave? AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!

Heute gibts mal was “auf die Ohren” — ein netter Bibliothekar/innen-Song!

Der Refrain sollte auswendig gelernt werden :-)

When I was just a baby, before I could speak
I would line up all my letter blocks alphabetically
and now it’s my vocation and my passion to assign
every decimal-numbered shelf to every decimal-numbered spine

I’m a librarian, I’m a librarian
and I like it quiet so the pages can be heard
I’m a librarian, I’m a librarian
and I do it for the love of the word

I bring order out of chaos, I shine light into the dark
because power comes from knowledge just like fire from a spark
and like Gutenberg and Luther with press and pen in hand
I take the message to the masses in a form they understand

And when the day is over I go home at 5:03
and I give thanks to God and then to Andrew Carnegie
and the U.S. Constitution and Orwell, Poe, and Twain
and I’ll return at 8AM to open up again

Shattering Stereotypes and Creating Positive New Images in the Internet Age

Librarian stereotypes have persisted for generations, yet their practical impact has rarely been studied. How pervasive are such stereotypes in the digital era, how are they changing, and how do they affect our daily work, our careers, and the future success of the profession? What can we do to defeat tired old perceptions and create positive new images? After exploring these questions for almost 10 years, librarian/blogger/pop culture maven Ruth Kneale offers insight and analysis in You Don’t Look Like a Librarian. In addition to presenting the results of a 1,000+-respondent survey and interviews with opinionated librarians across the spectrum, Kneale draws on published literature and lively discussions from her website (www.librarian-image.net).

The result is a unique, entertaining, and eye-opening look at librarian stereotypes and their real-world consequences in the Internet Age.

An episode of US Government film series on careers.

I assume it was shown to high school students. This one was filmed at the Iowa State College (now Iowa State University) library in 1946
