The Top 25 Most Famous Librarians in History

Here is an interesting article on working in information organizations; it is those who have made celebrity status out of it. While my initial response to this…voluntary post…was to chose an article from glorious leader Sarah T. Robert’s blog (, I instead opted for this informative and funny article on famous people that you may or may not have known worked as Librarians. Maybe one day I’ll make the list?

Hopefully not. The celebrity status scares me. What is interesting to take from this article is that we can decide at what level we want to engage with the profession. Some go all out; blog posts, twitter, attending every conference, allowing their lives to revolve around librarianship. Others stay off the digital side of things, but may read a book a day at home in order to sharpen their reader’s advisory skills. It’s up to you.
