What do librarians do when they get bored on the job?

Why not create a video clip during the Winter Break showing "workplace boredom in action" and post it to YouTube to show your colleagues! If you <a href="mailto:[email protected]">email me</a> the YouTube link, I'll start posting <a href="http://lawprofessors.typepad.com/law_librarian_blog/">the clips</a> in January.


Librarians are never bored. When they finish the work they are trained to do (for some that was 10-15 years ago), they move on to dabble in other professions: lyceum for the public, literacy campaigns, English for immigrants, voter registration, daytime homeless shelters, babysitting after school, gaming for teens, also rock concerts and fake guitar playing, TV reruns and movies on DVD outlets, art shows, book sales, coffee shops, snack bars, etc. Oh, and also publishing, because no one else knows how http://www.arl.org/bm~doc/arl-br-252-253-uic.pdf

I think its great that librarians are such multi talented people who can connect with others to make things happen. I bet the Library of Alexandria didn't have many bored people either.

"No doubt another may also think for me; but it is not therefore desirable that he should do so.." - Thoreau

never bored, but we love to screw around.
