My objectives are to inform, inspire, and provoke on the subject of libraries. Mostly academic libraries, but sometimes public, too. I’m very interested in theories applied to libraries, especially business models and believe that everything relates to libraries. My favorite topics to think and write about are: class, organizational culture, customer service, scholarly communication, creativity, positive psychology/happiness, productivity, publishing, and librarian stereotypes.

Instead of coming up with a clever moniker for this library-themed blog, I chose adj.librarian because most other library-authored blogs identify themselves via an adjective*, i.e., “The Lonely Librarian” or “The Wicked Librarian,” or “The ILL Librarian.” In this way, my librarian identity remains fluid and allows me to assume a new role each week or month, so that I may decide to be “The Feral Librarian” or “The Collegial Librarian.” Multiple, evolving identities can also spark commentary on how I’ve pulled off or defined myself in this role, or how other librarians might, and this fluidity also works as a writing cue to foster weekly posting.

*Disclaimer: Occasionally I may use a verb, adverb, or other part of speech.

  1. Good website! I truly love how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I’m wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I’ve subscribed to your RSS which must do the trick! Have a nice day!
