Have You Visited A Library Today?

It’s always nice when libraries get positive press. Just in case you missed it, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ran an article on Friday about libraries’ increasing popularity given the current economy. The Wall Street Journal also put out a similar, more somber piece about a week ago from the job seeker’s perspective. Both articles do highlight one of our strong points – the fact that our services are free to our users – a huge bonus these days. The moral of the story – make sure to support your libraries!

I'm the library guy. No, seriously, I'm the only male reference & instruction librarian. I also have the pleasure of serving several campus committees, the Academic Staff Assembly and the Chancellor's Task Force on LGBT Issues, among others.
