    I would love to see a blog post that addresses both the attitude of librarians who really do NOT want to move forward and how that’s detrimental to the communities they serve. Maybe also something about the growth of library science as a program but the lack of jobs when students graduate.

    Something about how newish librarians moving into management and managing librarians who have been in their positions for decades.

    How about a series of articles discussing local special libraries and their issues?

    Also, I’d like to nominate the author of this blog as a guest (or perhaps regular) blogger:

    As a neither newish nor youngish librarian, I really enjoy reading your blog. However your color scheme is hard on aging eyes. There simply isn’t enough contrast on the link colors. (It probably doesn’t help that my monitor is also neither newish nor youngish.)
    Other than that, keep up the good work!

      Hi Virginia, an excellent point. My Firefox Accessibilty Extension does note the contrast is too low on most of our links. When I designed the site I hadn’t learned much about web accessibility issues (I’ve learned a lot lately for my work). I’ll put it on my todo list to see if I can come up with better contrasting link colors.

    I’d like to see a post on planning for upward mobility in the library world… Training to schedule, additional education, how to find a mentor, etc. Thanks!

  • Danna says:

    I agree with Kathleen – a post on upward mobility in the library world would be interesting and informative.
