What librarianship is not...  
"this is what librarianship is not:

* It is not about checking books in and out.

* It is not about sitting at a reference desk and hoping people will ask you a question.

* It is not just picking a bunch of books for the library or adding a bunch of links to the website.

* It is not merely working 8 to 5 or putting in time.

* It is not getting that MLS and figuring you're done with education."
