"It begins with an urgent request for information.


A stranger up against some deadline walks into an office, whether a researcher or a student, with a question. But with a little digging, ulterior motives might shine through, and the answer found is not always the answer sought.


Reference librarianship is a shadowy art--part hardboiled experience, part blind luck.

 

 

"These portraits playfully disrupt the well-worn stereotypes of librarians as mousy sticklers, stereotypes as reductive and two-dimensional as the clichés of any genre.

 

As an alternative, these images ask what if librarians looked different, what if they were far more ambiguous characters than is commonly held, key agents in an unfolding story whose contributions might never see the light of day.
