The Librarian Militant

In honor of my lack of concentration...

The librarian must be the librarian militant before he [or she] can be the librarian triumphant.
~Melvil Dewey

In our User Services meeting today, our librarian quoted Melvil Dewey - randomly that is... well, you know, that is how we roll.

Anyway, I was looking for that exact quote he referenced when I came across the above line. Anyone else laugh at the notion of "librarian militant?"

Probably Dewey didn't mean something like this...

...but we do have to raise our barcode scanners and DEMCO labels and tattle tape to declare something, anything really, triumphantly!
