There was the smell of old books, a smell that has a way of making all libraries seem the same. Some say that smell is asbestos.
I like to imagine that library school was started because of some sort of silly bar bet where a guy got really plastered and told his buddy that he could convince people that librarians needed to be trained in the art of librarianship. Sadly, this is not the case; its roots are a bit more academic.
The loudest elderly women always had the quietest elderly husbands.
To be great at something, you must look to the great ones of thepast and improve on the ideas and techniques that they started. Iwas motivated to do better to improve on the ideas of others.
