Librarian Ire

Yes, but can you spell it?

Well, after consulting with a number of specialists I discovered that the crap can not be removed. Apparently, I will forever suffer from all that has been constantly slung at me the last few years.

I've been making a little list of late of words and phrases that really tick me off when used in the library world. Who do they think they're kidding??! If you're using these I know you're just being a pompous twit:

collaborative (-tor, -ting)
learning outcome
scholarly communication : grrrr Just say articles or email or repositories!
stewardship : Its a freakin' library!
innovative (-tor, -ting)

Woah! A colleague currently undergoing a serious colonoscopy, I mean training retreat sent these to me:


No way could I hold a straight face while those were being thrown around!

Don't forget functionality!!! I hate that one. And I am not fond of performance appraisal.
