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.


Welcome, American Libraries Readers!

You know what happens when your friends and colleagues get their issue of American Libraries before you do?

You get a lot of "you're in American Libraries!"...and you have no idea what is said.

What a relief when it's something great!

It's the August/September 2009 issue (as of this writing, not yet up at their website.)

On page 59 is Learning with Blogs by Mary Ellen Quinn. Many rock-star blogs are listed; and there is Pop Goes the Library!! Quinn's succinct analysis: "it's fun." AND THEN, it gets even better, because it mentions the contributors to Pop and their blogs: Carlie and her blog, Librarilly Blonde; Melissa and her blog, Librarian by Day; and me and Tea Cozy.

I'm not sure what is more thrilling; Pop being listed in the article, or our cluster of blogs being called fun.

So, thank you, Mary Ellen Quinn and American Libraries; and readers who have found their way to Pop, I hope you enjoy the blog!
