Can you identify the librarian responsible for supporting your college? If so, please write their name here. If you have consulted with the librarian, please tell us how you would rank your overall satisfaction with the service provided. If you have not, please skip to question 5. If you have not used the librarian’s services, please indicate why (check all that apply): –– I feel I can meet all my information needs myself. –– I didn’t know we had a designated librarian –– I didn’t know if the librarian could help me with my specific question/problem.
Use the stereotype to your advantage. Your leaders may not immediately be aware of the services you can provide—but you do have their trust, and that’s enough to buy you at least a few minutes on their busy calendar and a brief conversation explaining your services. If new clients ask about a bun or books, just smile and steer them towards appropriate information services. Many of your leaders will also express curiosity and be cautious about using a service with which they are unfamiliar. Don’t hesitate to take a few seconds to offer them free and reliable information services.
Paramedic/EMT: “Alright, but I hope you’re not squeamish. ” Each time I meet a new client or leader, I am faced with curiosity and mild disbelief. Most people expect to find librarians in a library. Not only do they expect to find us in a library, they expect us to wear glasses, a bun, and sensible shoes. Short of a modern librarian featured on a primetime TV show, I doubt we will be able to publicly refute the stereotype— but the stereotype is not an entirely bad thing. On its face, the typecasts probably don’t do much to help advance our profession or make us more visible to our clients.
