Dangerous Statements for Librarians to Make

As usual, Doug Johnson has created a very thought-provoking post on this topic on his Blue Skunk Blog. The comments that follow Doug’s post are excellent too. I’ll share a couple with you here but please read the whole post and thread!

11. Wikipedia/blogs/Twitter/etc. is not an acceptable source of information.

12. If only the principal/teachers/parents knew what I do they’d appreciate me!

Jim Randolph added to Doug’s list with this statement:

“You can’t check that out–it’s not on your reading level.”

I believe that what we DO is what matters but sometimes it’s easy to forget that what we SAY has a huge impact on how others perceive us.
