Pop Goes the Library

Using Pop Culture to Make Libraries Better.

by Sophie Brookover, Liz Burns, Melissa Rabey, Susan Quinn, John Klima, Carlie Webber, Karen Corday, and Eli Neiburger. We're librarians. We're pop culture mavens. We're Pop Culture Librarians.


Our British Doppelganger!

So, I subscribe to a feed of all mentions of the phrase "Pop Goes The Library", as tracked by Bloglines. It's a fun way to see who's talking about us, and when. Today, I found something quite unexpected: Retro To Go, "a guide to all things hip & retro", reports that no less an institution than The British Library in London is hosting a listening exhibit of the most popular music of the last half-century. The title of that exhibition? Pop Goes The Library. We are touched. We are honored. We wish we could go have a listen to the 10,000 songs on display. We are not sending a cease-and-desist letter.
