We Are Individuals: Librarians’ Demonstration of Individuality on the World Wide Web

by Garcia, Sarah C.

Abstract (Summary)
This study examines a sample of websites created by librarians on the World Wide Web. The websites were analyzed to see how librarians are discussing and presenting themselves on the World Wide Web in the attempt to escape the traditional stereotype. An analysis of these websites revealed that librarians are not trying to completely escape the stereotype but rather to prove that all librarians are individuals outside of their profession.
