Men of the Stacks-Kalender

"We know what people think: Dewey, glasses, shushing, books, hairbuns, Party Girl and card catalogs. Yes, we know what people think. We know that the American library profession is approximately 80% White and 72% female; and we know that tens of thousands of librarians are expected to reach age 65 in the next 5 years. We also know that this is not us".

"we" - das sind die zwölf Bibliothekare, die auf dem neuen "Men of the Stacks"-Kalender für das Jahr 2012 zu sehen sind, und diese wiederum sind "educators, programmers, project managers, entrepreneurs, program coordinators, contractors, consultants, and speakers. We are academics. We are authors, diversity officers, historians, administrators, deans, professors, and researchers. We are creatives. We are musicians, bakers, painters, and storytellers". Mein Favorit ist eigentlich der Februar, der ist so fröhlich. Mit dem Erlös wird das "It get's better"-Projekt unterstützt. - Siehe dazu auch und - Danke für den Hinweis an Jutta Zalud!
