What is librarian?

General term to describe a library worker. A librarian is traditionally one who collects, catalogs and makes materials (usually books) available for library patrons. Presently, due to the increased popularity of alternative "information sources" (primarily the Internet), one can sense an inferiority complex within the profession as a whole. Because of these feelings of inadequacy, librarians are facing a collective identity crisis, trying to redefine their place in light of the more sophisticated information world. A modern definition that all can agree on has yet to be found. In reality however, the librarian is a breed dying at the hand's of technological Darwinism. Most librarians will vehemently deny this truth, arguing that, basically, the general populace is lost and greatly inconvenienced without their help. Time will certainly show us otherwise.

What does "librarian" mean?

A research and information geek.
Librarians desire to make the whole world of information available to people at the time they need it. Frustrated by the lack of interest in anything more complex than Britney Spears' bust size, some librarians withdraw into an autistic fantasy where everything is perfectly organized. Others catch unsuspecting researchers and brain-dump the contents of the British Library on them. Generally possessed of insane amounts of patience, as Garrison Kiellor pointed out.

Technically, the term "librarian" refers to an individual who has obtained a Master's Degree in Library Science or Information Science, but is increasingly used to refer to any of a number of professionals and para-professionals employed in a library. The main function of a librarian is to connect individuals (patrons or customers) with information and entertainment, whether found in print, audio, video, or other (i.e. online) formats.

Librarian

A librarian is a person who is trained to help you find whatever information you might be looking for. Many people have an outdated stereotype of a librarian as an unmarried middle-aged woman who only cares about keeping kids away from her dusty old books. The truth, however, is that librarians come in all shapes, sizes, genders and ages; more important, librarians today are trained in Web design, online research (believe it or not, there's far more out there besides Google and Wikipedia), networking, and the latest Web 2.0 technologies. Books are still a huge part of the job, but librarians these days know far more about technology than most people, and are taught exactly how to use it to help you find what you need.

"The teacher loved my essay about World War I, but I would never have found all that stuff about it if I hadn't asked the librarian for help."
