Wer's nicht wusste: "It's hip to be a librarian"

In ihrem Artikel "It's hip to be a librarian", erschienen in der philippinischen Zeitung "Manila Bulletin", greift Rachel C. Barawid ein bibliothekarisches "Anti-Klischee-Klischee" auf, nämlich, dass wir jetzt alle cool und niedlich und erfolgreich und nicht mehr staubig sind: "Today's new breed of librarians have broken free from those dank and dusty school libraries, the century-old stereotypes, and have evolved into dynamic, progressive and most-sought after career people employed by large corporations, IT companies, hospitals and law firms. Yes, a librarian can now be anyone – from your cute neighbor or cool classmate, to that sophisticated babe or handsome hunk".
