This tweet jumped out at me the other day: "All the cool kids want to be catalogers! One of ours tells you why it's the best job in the world." It linked to this post by Smithsonian Special Collections Cataloger, Diane Shaw: What It's Like to Be a Cataloger.
Diane's post reminds me a little of Richard A. Murray's The Whimsy of Cataloging (one of the best descriptions of what it's really like to be a cataloger). She expresses the joy of working with interesting, fascinating collections on a daily basis and describes where things are trending in the future at her institution.
Yes, cool job for the cool kids!
