[Zitat] Unkommentiert – 1852

I have sometimes imagined a library, i.e. a collection of the works of true poets, philosophers, naturalists, etc., deposited not in a brick or marble edifice in a crowded and dusty city, guarded by cold-blooded and methodical officials and preyed on by bookworms, in which you own no share, and are not likely to, but rather far away in the depths of a primitive forest, like the ruins of Central America, where you can trace a series of crumbling alcoves, the older books protecting the most modern from the elements, partially buried by the luxuriance of nature, which the heroic student could reach only after adventures in the wilderness amid wild beasts and wild men. That, to my imagination, seems a fitter place for these interesting relics, which owe no small part of their interest to their antiquity, and whose occasion is nature, than the well-preserved edifice, with its well-preserved officials on the side of a city’s square. More terrible than lions and tigers these Cerberuses. Henry David Thoreau

We know that so often our libraries and museums are doing the critical work to help us achieve those goals in the first place. We can’t get to our goals without the work that you all do on the ground. […]But the services that you all provide are not luxuries; just the opposite. Every day, your institutions are keeping so many folks in this country from falling through the cracks.” Michelle Obama

“It isn’t just a library. It is a space ship that will take you to the farthest reaches of the Universe, a time machine that will take you to the far past and the far future, a teacher that knows more than any human being, a friend that will amuse you and console you — and most of all, a gateway, to a better and happier and more useful life.” Isaac Asimov

Hug a Librarian – Umarme deine/n Bibliothekar/in

Die Bibliothekarin

 

Heute ist der Hug a Librarian Day. Und das folgende Zitat macht klar, warum Bibliothekare und Bibliothekarinnen aller Welt heute eine dicke Umarmung verdienen:

Librarians are there:

To help, aid, assist. To teach, collate, enthuse. To catalogue, index, arrange, organise. To find, discover, promote, display. To interest, intrigue, amuse and amaze. To instill wonder. To help children, adults, old people, the underprivileged, the rich, the poor, those with voices and those without. To protect resources, to archive them, to store them, to save them for the future. To provide differing viewpoints, to engender thought, conversation, research, fun. To provide the best answer possible, to match the answer to the enquirer, to provide just enough information without overwhelming the user, but enough to always help. To better a local community, a company, a school, a college, an organisation, a country, the world.

Google is there:

To make money.

Ich glaube weder an Lehrer noch an Uni­versitäten, ich glaube an Bibliotheken. Die ideale Ausbildung besteht in meinen Augen darin, dass man sich zehn Jahre in eine Bibliothek setzt, ein Buch nach dem anderen liest und auf diese Weise allmählich zu Sinn und Verstand kommt. Die Bibliothek muss der Lehrer sein. Ich glaube nicht an Intellektuelle, die einem ihre Ideen an den Kopf werfen. Wenn man auch nur einen Menschen findet, der ähnlich denkt wie man selbst, darf man sich als Glückspilz bezeichnen. Deshalb ist es es besser, in eine Bibliothek zu gehen und einfach ein Buch nach dem anderen zu lesen.”

Ray Bradbury
