I’m Michelle Z. from In the Stacks.tv! I started doing video book reviews in grad school, and I’m now a librarian with more than 175 episodes produced. Here’s a little more about what I’m doing: My team and I at In the Stacks are currently building a book recommendation app. Come check us out and support us here: http://www.inthestacks.tv/its-app/ I also work as an information architect and write teen novels. Let’s look at librarians in a new way! xo Cheers

I am Lukas, 20, a half way finished library assistant. I currently work at my local public library in Finland. This picture was taken before childrens’ night library where we put up different activities revolving around space and afterwards the kids could sleep in the library. 

Btw, that’s Bob. He’s a very popular broccoli.

Greetings from the US! My name is Nate, the little guy is my son Cohen. I am the Information Technology Services Librarian at the L. Neslon Bell Library in Montreat, NC. I focus on ease of use in the library particularly online access. I am a father of two boys and love to hike the mountains of Western North Carolina. In my younger days I called myself a poet and writer. Check out some of my more recent work here. My research interests include how libraries directly effect low income families and communities, the American 50’s, and the lackluster punishment of sex criminals effects on victims of sexual abuse.

Hello! My name is Amy and I work at the Atlantic School of Theology Library in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I never thought that my undergraduate degree would compliment my MLIS so well (BA in Art History and Religious Studies)!! I love working in a small, special, academic library by the ocean! We have students from all across the country (and world) who come to study here. I find that the students drive to become Ministers was similar to my drive to become a Librarian, a passion for their community and service.

2 Year Anniversary! Thank you to all the submitters and Thank you to all our followers!

February was the 2 year anniversary of the launch of This is What a Librarian Looks Like! Submissions have slowed down after the last year but we still added over 500 new photos in the second year! That’s right! There are 1,294 photos from 36 different countries! We have have over 70,000 followers on Tumbrl!

What I’ve learned: Tumblr is great for submission, but terrible for indexing, searching, or just data period.

More importantly Librarians rock! They are fire dancers, fire breathers, runners, swimmers, bicyclists, zombies, fairies, roller derby divas, football players, foodies, skiers, beer lovers, whiskery and gin drinkers. They come from all over the world, in all shapes, sizes, ages, races, and ethnicities.

Hello! My name is Heaven-Leigh, I worked at the Knight Library at the University of Oregon for 4 years as a lead student assistant. Patrons remember me as “the one who always asks if you are looking for a male, female or single occupancy bathroom.” I left the library with full support from fellow staff and students to write a book on sex positivity in the life of sex workers. If people are interested in following the progress of my book, here’s a link to my blog!
