“A Hipper Crowd of Shushers”

I read a refreshing, but somewhat provocative article on the work and social life of librarians, including some law librarians, in the Sunday New York Times under the title “A Hipper Crowd of Shushers”. It had some interesting things to say about the changes in the profession and its image. I gather the article has sparked some debate, so some of you may have seen it. It has a link to a discussion on librarian.net.

I like the part of ordering drinks according to Dewey decimal classification, maybe because I’m just back from holiday; I wonder if this would work for Library of Congress as well?
