Via Scoop.itBuffy Hamilton’s Unquiet Commonplace “Book”
Every librarian should go read this thoughtful reflection and call to action.  NOW.  

“For far too long we have treated the innovators and leaders in our field as exceptional. While they are brilliant and brave, we can no longer treat them as the exceptions. We must see their work as the standard. Librarians who have raised their budgets in these economic times should not be treated as fortunate, or beyond the norm; we must see their example as the new normal”   and   “We must expect more of ourselves. We must stop talking about doing “more with less” and start talking about “doing better to get more.” We must expect all librarians, with degrees or without, with tenure or not, to lead and innovate. No more worker bees.”   YES, YES, and YES.
