Welcome to the Chatty Librarian!

This blog is dedicated to the discussion of public services within academic librarianship. I’m Joan, the blog creator and administrator, an Instruction and Reference Librarian at the American University in Cairo, Egypt. 

Working in Egypt is great–I’ll talk about that more in future posts–but I am missing the conversations I had with classmates in library school, and colleagues from when I worked at UNC and Duke University Libraries. Working overseas can feel professionally isolating. So this blog is an attempt to recreate some of those conversations, virtually.

I’ve also invited other professionally young librarians to contribute to the conversations that just can’t wait for national conferences. 

Please join us in these conversations by commenting on the blog or emailing me at chattylibrarian at gmail.
