Sometimes I’m not sure what’s better: library blogs, or library blog comments. While musing over Lee Leblanc’s TTW guest post about the nature of librarianship these days, I found Librarian Idol. The post to which I’ve linked takes Lee’s thoughts and runs with them on a parallel track, and if you’ve got a moment this weekend, Andrew’s thoughts are well worth a look.
The only thing I can really add to the goodness of this particular discourse is my somewhat heretical opinion that the question “Where’s the bathroom?” is neither stupid nor pointless. If you’ve ever been in a strange place with dire need for the facilities, you know. Like any other question that comes to the desk, this one deserves our care and respect. The fact that we might have heard it 20 times in a day means very little to the individual with kidney distress.
