  2. 2. Once upon a time … <ul><li>Image of an illuminated letter “A” from a Renaissance medical text. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>&quot;When I began work for public library interests in new York we had 40 free public libraries and 40,000 saloons, so that by the law of averages a boy leaving his home in the evening would pass 999 open doors with a cordial welcome to the worst influences to every one inviting him to the companionship and inspiration of the best books.” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Melvil Dewey, The Field and Future of Traveling Libraries, 1901 </li></ul></ul>

  5. 5. What is a librarian? <ul><li>&quot;But the modern library is less a reservoir than a fountain. Its librarian is an active, aggressive factor in popular education. He recognizes fully his duty to get and to keep, but puts far above this his greater duty to use.&quot; </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Melville Dewey. On Libraries, 1904, p. 196 </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. What is a librarian? <ul><li>Tommy sat down next to Jonathan and reached for the keyboard -- and Mary Kay took it away from them both. &quot;This is my pidgin,&quot; she said firmly, and they relinquished it. (Mary Kay is one of the secret masters of the world: a librarian. They control information. Don't ever piss one off.) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Spider Robinson, The Callahan Touch, p. 64. </li></ul></ul>
