“Librarians, that herbivorous breed” is a quote from Infinite Jest.

This blog is a cautious foray into the world of writing about being a historian and becoming a librarian at the same time. I will be a UCL student in 2011. My librarian interests are rare books, manuscripts, and their cataloguing and curation. My non-library interests are scholarship in the old fashioned sense, literature, Irish history and culture, museums, feminism, pop and other music made by women, DIY punk, comics and zines, old stuff, politics, good design in everything, clothes, art, nature, food, film, and ideas.
