  1. It does sound interesting and I’d be tempted to take part. What concerns me is that it automatically seems to assume that a Librarian must work in a Library! While I can of course accept that a very large number of Librarians do still work in Libraries, someone such as myself who is a Librarian still functions as a Librarian but has worked outside of a Library for over thirteen years.
