RT Sound Recording DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 535009906 LA English T1 This book is overdue! how librarians and cybrarians can save us all A1 Johnson, Marilyn,, Huber, Hillary., Tantor Media., PB Tantor Audio PP [Old Saybrook, CT] YR 2010 SN 9781400116348 1400116341 AB Those who predicted the death of libraries forgot to consider that in the automated maze of contemporary life, none of us--neither the experts nor the hopelessly baffled--can get along without human help. And not just any help--we need librarians, who won't charge us by the question or roll their eyes, no matter what we ask. Who are they? What do they know? And how quickly can they save us from being buried by the digital age? This book is a romp through the ranks of information professionals and a revelation for readers burned out on the clichés and stereotyping of librarians. Here are bloggers, radicals and visionaries who fuse the tools of the digital age with their love for the written word and the enduring values of free speech, open access, and scout-badge-quality assistance to anyone in need.--From publisher description.
