In my previous life, I worked as an archivist, librarian and part-time history instructor. Jobs that I truly enjoyed. One of the things that made my job so enjoyable was the people I met both online and in real life. People have this image of librarians as being these crazy cat ladies (we do have our fair share of cat lovers) or doddy old men but in reality, librarians are some of the most creative and fashionable (yeah, I said it) people you’d ever want to meet.
One of those creative types that I’m proud to call my friend is Michael Porter. A few months back, he and another creative librarian, David Lee King, sent out a call to their fellow librarians to contribute multimedia to their Library 101 video. The final project will include the video and a website with links and resources to keep librarians abreast of the changes in technology and librarianship.
