Jessamyn in the NY Times

Woo woo! Jessamyn is in the NYTimes.
Jessamyn West, 38, an editor of “Revolting Librarians Redux: Radical Librarians Speak Out” a book that promotes social responsibility in librarianship, and the librarian behind the Web site librarian.net (its tagline is “putting the rarin’ back in librarian since 1999”) agreed that many new librarians are attracted to what they call the “Library 2.0” phenomenon. “It’s become a techie profession,” she said.
In a typical day, Ms. West might send instant and e-mail messages to patrons, many of who do their research online rather than in the library. She might also check Twitter, MySpace and other social networking sites, post to her various blogs and keep current through MetaFilter and RSS feeds. Some librarians also create Wikis or podcasts.

Mefi Librarian Call-Out?

I'm tickled by the idea that Metafilter is a secret bastion of (potentially erm, "turned-on") librarians. I wish Iwas a librarian. I think all the librarians on Metafilter should sign in here and band together at suitable meet-ups to form an army of goodness that (please God please God please God) will take over the world.

Library weblogs: some media hotness

Library weblogs are in the news this month in both the major librarian print publications: Library Journal [linked] and American Libraries [print only]. I have nothing special to say about this, but it's one more notch on the keyboard for webloggers.
