Male Monday: An Endangered Species

Posted on 1 November 2010 Monday


This just came through my email, courtesy of Michelle Dartis, MLS degree Candidate,
Vice President, Indianapolis Book Festival, Inc. and Secretary, Indiana Black Librarian Network.

Michelle sent this article which recently posted on NPR about the shortage of Black Male librarians. Does it matter? Remember, librarians manage information. We provide access, acquire it, teach how to find, use and store it. We’re professional researchers, indexers, information brokers, cataloguers and archivists at every major corporation and institution in the world.  We’re culture keepers.

Does it matter? Or, are Black, Latino, Asian and Native males  running from  a dying profession?
