Life Long Learning

In viewing the ideas for lifelong learning, I find that attitude makes a big difference. Obstacles are sometimes created due to attitude alone. Technology can be one of our most useful allies, unless our attitude turns it into a foe (obstacle). I was concerned that it would be difficult to create a blog--the only tiny glitch was finding a user name for my g-mail account--a common difficulty that librarians encounter often when they are helping patrons create e-mail accounts. I was pleasantly surprised at the ease of the process.

As librarians, it seems a natural part of our profession to do informal teaching on the job. I feel strongly also about mentoring employees who are considering entering our profession. These are lifelong learning habits that I already practice.
