Ears perk up.... Is someone badmouthing librarians? My brother-in-law states that we just sit around all day and do nothing. We dont make widgets and we babysit. Hummmm. I tried to defend myself, but to no avail. Am I the reference librarians at Davis and Perkins( Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill) ...ummm no. One day maybe. But I can answer most questions...I can perform most research tasks that are ask of me by my patrons. I am a public librarian for sure,but we can hold our own.
