Summary Those who predicted the death of libraries forgot to consider that in the automated maze of contemporary life, neither the experts, the hopelessly baffled, or those in between can get along without human help. And not just any help-- we need librarians, who won't charge us by the question or roll their eyes, no matter what we ask. Who are they? What do they know? And how quickly can they save us from being buried by the digital age? This book is a romp through the ranks of information professionals and a revelation for readers burned out on the clich├ęs and stereotyps of librarians. Here are bloggers, radicals, and visionaries who fuse the tools of the digital age with their love for the written word and the enduring values of free speech, open access, and scout-badge-quality assistance to anyone in need
