Great article from the Des Moines Register: Our Librarians, Our Heroes. I'm not sure I like being thought of as someone tough on spelling who wears a cardigan (although it is somewhat accurate), but otherwise this is a great tribute to reference librarians. :) And I particularly like the following quote:
"...the reference librarian cuts through all the information overload like a skilled surgeon."
Having just blogged about this recently, it is great to see that others (and non-Librarians at that!) are thinking these things, too.
