Let’s hear it for librarians!January 1, 2010
My good friend @charjtf tweeted the link to this list of 85 reasons to be thankful for librarians the other day.
Prior to being a technical writer and technical communicator, I had another career as a teacher-librarian. I did that job for nearly two decades (that long?!) and loved every minute of it. I only moved on when I had the opportunity to work for a library automation software company back in the early 1990s… and from there I started writing the user and training manuals, and learning how to create WinHelp (RTF codes, anyone?) and a website (Notepad, anyone?) — and the rest is history.
That article again on the good things librarians do? http://www.zencollegelife.com/2009/12/29/85-reasons-to-be-thankful-for-librarians/
