Thank goodness there’s a contest on Facebook to nominate Librarian Superheroes. Surreptitiously sponsored by Gale/Cenage Learning in anticipation of the ALA conference, this contest seeks nominees that embrace emerging technologies, show leadership, exhibit determination and enthusiasm and push the boundaries.
Instead of wondering if this describes most of us in this profession (which it might), ponder your custom cartoonized image on a collectible lunchbox or trading cards. Now you can be as cool as Scooby Doo. As a former production manager, I must warn you – I believe those prizes will be digitally printed in some way as producing one offs that are debossed, embossed, molded or screenprinted would be really cost prohibitive.
Rules are here. Let the games begin. Prizes awarded at ALA in June.
I’d like a superhero costume with a cape too.
