ala-con:

A librarian’s worth

This great infographic, created by Masters in Education and ObizMedia, gives a lot of new light on the role of libraries and librarians, as it changes a reference point totally. What if we compared libraries to Amazon?

Each day in US public libraries more items are circulated than on Amazon. Public library cardholders outnumber registered Amazon customers by, take your breath, five to one!

What’s more, librarians answer about 7.2 million questions weekly. What would we do without librarians? There is only one answer to this question: nothing.
