Radical Librarians

by

Keep an eye out during this week’s protests for Radical Reference. The librarians’ collective will have 24 members on the scene during the RNC providing “ready reference,” hooked up by cell phone to fellow librarians on the West Coast, alert to answer questions and confirm or deny street rumors. They also answer more involved left-wing queries on their site. The most common question on the street is one these reference-desk pros hear all the time at the library: “Where’s a restroom?”
