So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish*

By Barbara Fister. It’s been a good ride. For 10 years, I’ve been an Inside Higher Ed blogger. I’ll be sad to leave the blogging team, but after 10 years readers have probably had enough of me. (Ever since the days of sharing my opinions on library Listservs in the 1990s, I have always imagined eyes rolling as my name pops up: not that woman again!) Opinions, I have them. More...

A Babel Fish Bookshelf

By Barbara Fister. For years I've kept some sort of record of what I've been reading, though it's not always complete.

Change and Agency

By Barbara Fister. I’ve always had a prickly relationship with the word “change” when it comes to libraries. It has been invoked as both an existential threat -- we had better change, and fast, or we’ll be irrelevant -- and as an imperative -- you must change, or you’re one of those stodgy people who stands in the way of progress.

Dona Nobis Pacem

By Barbara Fister. If you want to get my goat, or, I daresay, the goat of any librarian, make a gratuitous reference to shushing. The finger held to the lips, the aggressive whisper, the frown at a pin’s drop.
