The Ubiquitous Librarian

In his blog, Brian Mathews muses:

"The Ubiquitous Librarian is everywhere! The Ubiquitous Librarian constantly seeks new ways to interact with users. The Ubiquitous Librarian is all about participation. It’s about stepping outside of the library and interacting with patrons wherever they may be: online, in the classroom, in the hallway, at football games, in the cafeteria, off campus. Instead of trying to force them into the library, into our world, the ubiquitous librarian is embedded into their world. It’s about not pushing the library agenda, but rather about participating in the larger community we serve. Put simply: Instead of trying to make your library seem cool, be a librarian and do cool things."

How are we doing?
