"The absolute best thing about library school is your peers. You will all have a Leslie Knope-ian intensity about something. It may be Star Wars, hockey, astrophysics, or that damn rock wall, but everyone brings some kind of obsession to the table. There is sure to be someone who will be a little too into board games. People will regularly discuss Weasleycest and Tami Taylor’s hair at parties, because if there’s one thing librarians get, it’s an enthusiast. We are all punk-ass book jockeys, and we want you to read our favorite book. And then maybe we’ll break down the Library of Congress Subject Headings afterwards."
Allison R. on how library school is actually exactly how you imagined it to be.

Photographer checks out US public libraries' function, form When Robert Dawson told his son Walker to get ready for a summer road trip, it meant 11,000 miles driving around looking at public libraries. Libraries had already been an obsession of Dawson for 16 years, and now, after two summers of cross-country tours, "The Public Library: A Photographic Essay" ($35; Princeton Architectural Press) has been finally released - in time for National Li...

Depends on the library's particular interest in the book.  Classification changes also as the social mores change.  In adding an Opposing Viewpoints title on Video Games, the previous edition was located in the 300's [talking about it as a social problem], while the current edition went to 790's as a straight game.

The Chicago Public library launched a new website this morning, its first redesign since 2007 touting features that can be likened to “Pinterest meets Amazon .”

I'm starting to question the efficacy of live blogging at the ALA 2014 annual.
I'm all about liveblogging the ALA annual in Las Vegas, this year.  Think I'm going to try U-stream to see if I can upload iphone streams, and maybe BlogTalk Radio, I dunno.  I'd like to compile everything in a YouTube video,...

As more people use their local libraries to connect to the Internet, libraries are requesting funding for better services.

Confessions of a Book Killer
Gather round, and I'll tell you a story. In 2001 I worked for a large Midwestern research university on a grant from the National Science Foundation. I was tasked with digitizing a collection of books on non-Euclidian geometry. Hang on. I'll wait here. You ...

From one-room historic buildings to modern architectural marvels, Robert Dawson has been photographing libraries for almost 20 years. His new book is called The Public Library.

Louis Shores, writing in 1939 in the second edition of his Basic Reference Sources, defined a reference book as “any book which is used to refer to for specific information.” Today’s “Best Reference Sources” can be found in reference and circulating collections, online, accessed on your laptop or iPhone, or even carried in your backpack. Here are the best of the year's output.
