According to U.S. News, librarianship is one of the hot careers in 2008. I'm always a little confused when my occupation makes these sorts of lists, but I am happy to see that I am apparently in the "smart speciality" subset.

Some interesting bits about public access to information: OpenCongress shows you what's happening in real time, the Public Library of Law (PLOL) is open for business; and journalists are debating Wikipedia as a valid source.

Tomorrow: lots of links from others!

That must be why a library director with 7 years experience has a better chance finding a virgin in Latonia than a job....

Oh, librarianship is hot, alright. Hot meaning stifling, uncomfortable, suffocating, smothering, scalding, blistering hot.
