Are librarians irrelevant in the age of Google? Hell no. After years hanging out with a wide variety of librarians, Marilyn Johnson, author of the upcoming THIS BOOK IS OVERDUE! How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All is convinced that the profession is more vital than ever. We need libraries that embrace books and bytes -- that preserve the best of the past and help us keep pace with technology --and we need all you smart, savvy, connected librarians to help us organize and navigate them. Johnson, author of the entertaining and award-winning The Dead Beat, has written a lively and informative book about librarians in the digital age and talks about some of the (wildly) creative librarians she found who are meeting its challenges.
