NextGen Librarians

Rachel Singer Gordon posted a piece earlier this week, called "Revenge of the NextGen People" on the Library Journal site.

Rachel, I'm with you on the clue train and have felt for years that you had to have 20 years of service before you were taken seriously in the library community. What I've found recently, however, is a renewed commitment to the younger generation of up and coming professionals. Maybe I've just passed that magic threshold of I've-been-here-long-enough, but it seems like Boomer librarians are waking up to GenX/Next Gens and the energy we bring to the profession.

Mostly I want to say YES to the TV commercial. I'd love to be a part of it. I'd love for OCLC to be a part of it. Sign me up!
