Do you look like a librarian?

Ruth Kneale has written a great investigation into librarians\’ views of the public perception of librarians in the Internet Age. I see I\’m not the only one to get the comment \”You don\’t look like a librarian\” or \”You have to do a Masters degree to be a librarian!?\”. A very interesting read, which suggests that the public perception is gradually changing.

\”You don\’t look like a librarian!\” I heard that so often while I was in library school in 1997-99 that I set my email signature
file to be that quote, and vowed that I wouldn\’t change it until I went two months without hearing it. Well, I finally
changed my signature file in the spring of 2002!
