In the Library with the Lead Pipe is new blog by a few folks I go way back with and some others who I’m sure are similarly sharp. Here’s how they represent:
We are six librarians working in academic, public, and school libraries across the United States. In addition to essays by its founders, In the Library with the Lead Pipe will feature articles by guests representing special libraries and archives, as well as educators, administrators, library support staff, and community members.
In the Library with the Lead Pipe is intended to help improve our communities, our libraries, and our professional organizations. Our goal is to explore new ideas and start conversations; to document our concerns and argue for solutions. Each article is peer-reviewed by at least one external and one internal reviewer.
These kinds of conversations have the potential to go somewhere, so I’m glad for the chance to see this collaboration unfold. Good luck, y’all.
Thanks, Char! My first post is next Wednesday, so keep an eye out. Following Brett’s review is scary, but hopefully I won’t disappoint.
don’t fret – just channel all those writing skills they drilled into us at the nerd factory. xo.
