Jess Fink posted a pretty hard-hitting piece earlier about dealing with misogyny in her family. After the tragedy at UCSB this weekend, social media has lit up with some much-needed and frank conversation about just how prolific, sinister and culturally accepted it is for men to openly hate…

This is a fantastic piece of writing.  And I couldn’t agree with her more.

For most of the human race, pretty much all of the lifespan of the human race, information was currency. Information was like gold. It was rare, it was hard to find, it was expensive. You could get your information, but you had to know where to go, you had to know what you were looking at, you had to know how to find your information. It was hard. And librarians were the key players in the battle for information, because they could go and get and bring back this golden nugget for you, the thing that you needed.

Over the last decade, which is less than a blink of an eye in the history of the human race, it’s all changed. And we’ve gone from a world in which there is too little information, in which information is scarce, to a world in which there is too much information, and most of it is untrue or irrelevant. You know, the world of the Internet is the world of information that is not actually so. It’s a world of information that just isn’t actually true, or if it is true, it’s not what you needed, or it doesn’t actually apply like that, or whatever. And you suddenly move into a world in which librarians fulfill this completely different function.

We’ve gone from looking at a desert, in which a librarian had to walk into the desert for you and come back with a lump of gold, to a forest, to this huge jungle in which what you want is one apple. And at that point, the librarian can walk into the jungle and come back with the apple. So I think from that point of view, the time of librarians, and the time of libraries—they definitely haven’t gone anywhere.

And I stand by every word of it.

I absolutely love this.  But then, as a librarian, that’s not really much of a surprise.  

When I first decided that librarianship was for me, I didn’t realise just how much of a world it opened up.  I’ve been a librarian for over 20 years now, and I can honestly say that I love it still.
