Step into the shoes of a librarian

Abstract

To truly understand and get a flavour of the work that anyone does, it is necessary to imagine a day in their life or taking a walk in their shoes. This chapter will take you into fictional scenarios in which you step into the shoes of a librarian. This will give you an opportunity to be a fictional character of a school, medical, public, academic or special library and to see things from the perspective of a librarian. You will face adverse scenarios that are based on real-life examples of recent times when librarians have had to struggle to prove the value of their profession to their organisations and to the general public.
