Have you ever seen/heard something and knew instantly that that thing was part of your destiny?
When I started seeing various "Batman Returns His Library Books" iterations online, I knew that whenever I finally secured that coveted professional librarian job, I had to have one.
When the internet was down at our library last week, I finally had the opportunity to do just that. I happened to have an image of Michael Keaton Batman and the Batman Returns logo in my Dropbox folder. Thanks to those and Microsoft Publisher, I was unstoppable.
For anyone who wants to come in to my office, I think it's really important to know that I love Batman and that I'm a nerd. There's a high chance I'll say things like, "Never rub another mans rhubarb!" or "Where we're going, we don't need roads."
As an academic librarian, it's also really important to me that students, faculty, and staff feel comfortable with asking me questions. That's what I'm here for! I hope the sign helps let everyone know that a nerd-tastic, easy to approach librarian lives in this office and is ready to answer questions. Even if I might look busy I'm probably just continuing my ongoing battle with subject guides. That's an entire different blog entry.
