"Before deciding librarianship is right for you, make sure you understand what today’s librarians do all day. If you want quiet and lots of time to read, think again. Today’s libraries are full of collegial, and sometimes even downright noisy, collaboration, creation, and community activities, and are as much about technology as print on paper."

Meredith Schwartz’s "How To Be a 21st Century Librarian," from Library Journal. A fantastic, digestible overview of the profession and absolute required reading for those researching MLS/MLIS programs.

It reminds me that I need to write my “Why I Didn’t Go to Library School” post.
