No respect

As some of you may know, I'm a recent library school graduate. Yesterday I arrived at work and in my email I found a message that explained that an unfilled full-time position in our reference department was being reclassified as a paraprofessional position rather than requiring an MLS as it has previously. In the relatively short time that I have worked for this public library, we have lost two full time MLS positions in reference - a department of just a few total positions.

When I first took my library job I was encouraged to go to library school for a Master's degree. They told me that the future was bright for persons with an MLS. Now I'm afraid that future is becoming less and less bright as time goes on.

Sam Webb on election 2008

Sam Webb may not be the most inspiring speaker, but I wanted to share some of the vision of the party on this site.

Out of commission

Sorry about being away without checking in, but I'm a bit gimpy right now. I fell in an icy parking lot and broke my ankle. I believe that soon I'll be mostly functional again, so I'll get back to posting. In the mean time, please get out there and vote in your respective primaries. Not participating isn't revolutionary, it's irresponsible. The time will come when our participation will require more than just voting, but we haven't reached that critical mass yet.
