Recommended: Librarian's Guide to Etiquette
Today a coworker posted some excerpts from Librarian's Guide to Etiquette and I was immediately seized by giggles. In hopes that you will be too, here are a few quotes:
- "If you are a candidate for a librarian position and someone from the search committee asks, "If you were a garden tool, what kind of garden tool would you be? And why?" ... it is perfectly acceptable for you get up and walk out of the interview without saying another word."
- "You can never be too careful when you suspect the caller is pranking you at the Reference Desk. It is especially risky to mock the person's voice when responding to a suspected pranker. Don't learn this lesson the hard way."
Congratulations to Sal and J for lightening the moods of librarians everywhere. At least for those of us whose humor trends snarky.
