A post I wrote last week about how on earth people figure out that they want to be librarians, provoked a surprising (for me) amount of comments. It seems a lot of people have an interest in the subject! This prompted a suggestion from Jennie Law that we should all blog our library roots/routes (a few people already have: see here, here and here – apologies if I’ve missed any others!). Ned (aka thewikiman) then suggested that we should try and collect these posts, to create a resource for new and potential new professionals.
While I was twiddling my thumbs and thinking what a good idea that was, Ned went off and set up a wiki to do exactly that. And here it is: The Library Routes Project Wiki. Obviously, it needs a few more entries to start with! So, if you’ve already blogged something along these lines, head over to the wiki and add in a link. If not, why not write something now? You don’t have to be a blogger to contribute: if you don’t have a blog, just create a new page on the wiki and write your entry there! Ned’s put some instructions on how to do so on the wiki, but if you have any trouble just let us know.
