Mind your manners!

Etiquette is just so important don’t you think?  Good manners in the library are what we expect from our students, and of course we always have students in our libraries who understand the finer points of etiquette don’t we?

If, however,  you are struggling with your own manners librarywise  you might find the following blog very helpful.  A Librarian’s Guide to Etiquette is perfect for the librarian struggling with manners.  The blog is funny, but the comments which go with the posts are hilarious too, click on the post titles to bring up the comments in the right format.

Particular favourites of mine are:  Chairs, Pushing in, and Glamorous, being.

This blog has just been awarded one of the really big prizes in the blogging world The Salem Press Library Blog Award.  It won for quirky library blog – you’ll see why!

    Thank you thank you thank you Bridgy, that is hilarious. My personal fave (so far, haven’t read them all yet):

    If I was a proper Miss Manners Librarian, I’d have been in a beautiful new library for nearly two years now – wish I’d known the proper protocol the day I arrived back at school from a union meeting to find that a small person had thrown up into the Anthony Browne picture books.

    I love this site too, so thanks for blogging about it. My favourite is Being Popular
    http://libetiquette.blogspot.com/2011/02/popular-being.html After having so many students asking for books about Twilight celebrities and Justin Bieber (or is that Justine Bibber – see comments for the Being Popular post), I almost know enough to make them think that I actually know who they are talking about!
