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.

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.
The librarian used the computer catalog to help Susie find a book about flesh-eating plants.
Librarians are very misunderstood.Most people believe that librarians:
WIT :A smart person's weapon against ignorance
well-minded angels with little street-sense or business-savvy, love to help and occasionally are reminded why, often experience burn-out due to low pay, bureaucratic management, and the discovery that the homeless and elderly are more familiar with libraries then your son or daughter, aspire to make a difference in a constantly changing world, are some of the most interesting individuals you will ever meet, are more excited about technology then you think.
The librarian smiled politely and said to the crazy patron, "I'm sorry Sir, but I can't help you print your email from hyperspace."
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 Many people have an outdated stereotype of a librarian as an unmarried middle-aged woman who only cares about keeping kids away from her dusty old books.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."
Librarians wield unfathomable power, bring order to chaos, wisdom and culture to the masses, preserve every aspect of human knowledge and rule the information universe.
