Some Librarian Humor!

Happy Monday!  As we return to work from the holiday break, how about a little humor to ease into the week?

So, how many librarians does it take to change a light bulb?  That probably depends on the type of librarian.

How many academic librarians does it take to change a light bulb?
Just five. One changes the light bulb while the other four form a committee and write a letter of protest to the Dean, because after all, changing light bulbs IS NOT professional work!

How many catalogers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Just one, but they have to wait to see how LC does it first.

How many cataloguers does it take to change a light bulb?
Only one provided it is in AACR2.

How many reference librarians does it take to change a light bulb?
“Well, I don’t know right off-hand, but I know where we can look it up!”

How many reference librarians does it take to change a light bulb?
None if it has a LCSH heading.

How many library system managers does it take to change a light bulb?
All of them as the manual was lost in the last move (or flood).

How many library managers does it take to change a light bulb?
At least one committee and a light bulb strategy focus meeting and plan.

How many library technicians does it take to change a light bulb?
Seven. One to follow approved procedure, and six to review the procedure. (8 if you count the librarian they all report to)
