At the Atlantic, Adrienne Green spoke with research librarian Theresa Quill about how the profession is changing and the traits that bring librarians of different generations together:
I don’t know that I agree that a person is born to be a librarian, but most librarians that I know seem to really love what they do. It’s a pretty service-heavy profession. Most librarians get into it because they like working with people and helping people, and I think that fosters the sense of community and collaboration. Those are things that are often parts of one’s individual personality as well.
