Summary:
Librarians have long struggled to combat some of the negative stereotypes about their image and profession, but to do so effectively it's necessary to look at these perceptions in a historical context. Not Your Ordinary Librarian by Ashanti White explores the origin of the images of the librarian in popular media and looks at the effects of these stereotypes, both negative and positive. White also addresses emerging archetypes which challenge the public's traditional view of librarians. This book is valuable in helping librarians discredit common myths and misperceptions about their roles, as well as providing an entertaining survey. Among the examples of pop culture White examines are films such as "It's a Wonderful Life", "Party Girl", and "The Music Man" and TV shows like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Batman".
