I read this article and thought, this is what librarianship is supposed to be about. Marc Webb’s idea to have patrons reserve time to spend in a one-on-one setting with librarians instruction them in research is a novel idea, something I’ve only seen in academic libraries. I know there are many people who could truly benefit from such attention.
I think I’ll suggest we implement a program like this to our directors and see what they say. Even if it’s just a pilot program in one of the larger libraries in our system, it might be worth the effort.
