Library Day in the Life is a online project that encourages librarians of all types to write about what they do in their day-to-day work. Blog posts, Flickr photos, and YouTube videos are tied together with this tag. Tweets are designated with a hashtag for the specific round of Library Day in the Life.
As of July 2010, there have been five official occurances of this event. The first round was inspired by Bobbi Newman in July 2008, and organized by Lori Reed. Since then over 150 librarians have participated in the project.
The hope of the participants is that through greater transparency, the users they serve will be more aware of the value that librarians add to managing the flow of information. For additional readings on the topic, there are several biographies and memoirs written by librarians on the internet including the recently published Quiet, Please: Dispatches from a Public Librarian by Scott Douglas.
