Librarians vs. stereotypes + Rock Band

Eric Frierson at UT Arlington (along with some colleagues) has put together this terrific short promotional video for librarians’ services there.  I love it!  (Annie, something for our list to show our students!)

In other news, Annie and I taught our first LIB 101 class last week.  I had the flu and had to use a microphone to be heard, but Annie persevered in getting Rock Band (The Most Complicated Video Game In the World To Set Up) running for the end of the class, and that was a pretty good success.  They sang along!  This week, we’re delving into search and wayfinding in new environments:  games, Google, and the library catalog.  Should be interesting.

    I love that video too. Unfortunately, stereotypes still exist in some libraries :(, but thank goodness, there’s more and more of you and Annie-types these days!
