Why I am a Librarian:
a tale of toads, magic and little old ladies


Swindon Public Library
Today is National Libraries Day (#NLD12), so I thought it a good day to reflect on why I am a Librarian even though I am employed as an academic in the Department of Digital Humanities at King's College London.

As I stated in the introduction to my book Digital Futures I am a "lapsed librarian" - I have no library or collection to curate and look after. But you can take the boy out of the library, but you can't take the love of libraries out of the boy.
