The Word, Open, Above A Shelf.

What’s new in Open Shelf: April 1, 2019

Continuing our tradition, we bring you a special issue today. One that incorporates the bizarre and the silly and puts a spotlight on creativity. These articles are special because you won’t find them in the mainstream news. Don’t worry, they’re not alternative facts, more like, alternative realities.

Ever wonder how a mid-career library cat feels? Are you a mid-career library cat in need of some pointers? The mid-career malaise of a library cat is for you!

Feeling unsettled? Don’t read any of the following articles:

Staffless libraries: Have they been hacked, or worse, are they alive?

To leave or not to leave: The case of Ex-Libris, the Remainders and the Library Union

Disquiet, in charcoal

As always, we invite your comments, feedback and thoughts. Enjoy, and don’t forget to check out our regular issue, out in just a few days!
