Thank you, twitter Tuesdays, for being here for me on a day with 2 meetings and 2 classes all in a row. Because now I have to go to sleep.
(P.S. I went to a conference last Friday, so my stream is probably more librarianish than usual this time around.)
@TheLiB boo to filtering!

@PunkRockKarl Gus was like, “why was she mad about too MANY beans? Isn’t more better?”

I don’t care what kind of day you’re having, it’s never cool to yell at the Chipotle worker for putting too many beans on your taco.

@divanoir har, i was at a conference, some said younger folks dress unprofessionally, and someone pointed out that old folks sometimes do 2!

awesome point: inappropriate dress is not a generational thing! #lacuny2009

is turnover in positions healthy for libraries? is commitment to the profession more impt than to the specific job yr in? #lacuny2009

second panel: younger librarians (can’t make myself say next gen) may be easier for students to approach #lacuny2009

@AgentRamona yeah, the patron stuff can be hard hard hard. more training w/that would be really helpful.
1:24 PM Oct 23rd from Echofon in reply to AgentRamona
@AgentRamona for me it’s about 50% but I wish I had more tech, pedagogy, adv cataloging, marketing. And a req thesis & internship.

Jenna Freedman: key value we need to pass on to up & coming librarians is service. (right on!) #lacuny2009

there’s *not* always a strong correlation between tech savviness and age. I’m kind of tired of that assumption. #lacuny2009

@oelibrarian I was thinking the same thing. What about the middle? #lacuny2009

panel time! the graying (bluing) of the profession. :) #lacuny2009
11:18 AM Oct 23rd from Echofon
it’s true that there’s never enough time to learn everything you want to in library school. maybe the degree should be longer? #lacuny2009
10:50 AM Oct 23rd from Echofon
the feral professionals label makes me feel weird–what about older but new librarians? (maybe i just feel left out) #lacuny2009
10:41 AM Oct 23rd from Echofon
just have to say it: is better compensation of young librarians tied to increase in male librarians? #lacuny2009
10:26 AM Oct 23rd from Echofon
good news for young librarians? SW says will be hard to avoid managerial roles in the future b/c of demo shift #lacuny2009
