Librarians Go Wild

Each summer,  librarians from across the nation meet at the American Library Association conference.  In recent years, various libraries have vied for the title of “Book Cart Drill Champion.”

Five teams  competed for the gold this year, dressed in costumes ranging from Vikings to Elvis Presley.  One of the library’s information assistants participated as a member of the Pitt’s  School of Information Sciences team.

Check out NPR’s story:  Librarians Go Wild for Book Cart Gold on  All Things Considered, and see video from the competition.

BTW, the iSchool  team came in 3rd.  We’re proud of their fearless attempt to go for the gold!
