Great Myth of the Librarian Grays

The Guardienne of the Tomes has a great post on the myth of the librarian grays, or how the graying of the profession would lead to new and exciting (and many) jobs for new library school grads.

I also really appreciated her comment that librarians can leave the library--you can come back later or you can look for work that isn't in public or academic libraries. IMHO library schools give short shrift to librarians that work outside of these two realms, outright ignoring special librarians or self-employed librarians. I think library schools should place more emphasis on "non-traditional" library jobs or self-employment options.
