“Why Do You Need A Master’s Degree To Alphabetize?” Or, Library School Semester 3 Overview

Welcome back, Reader! Today's post goes out to the customer my colleague interacted with a while ago who was obstinate over the fact that becoming a titled Librarian requires a Master's Degree, because he knew the alphabet before he was in kindergarten and "that's really all you need!" I'm here to inform you that the alphabet is not the only thing you need to know to work in a library. I could go on a tirade about the ignorance of such a statement and detail some of the many skills and knowledge needed to be an adequate, much less good, librarian, but I don't think that would do anyone much good. Instead I'm going to tell you about the classes I'm taking this summer and the role the topics they cover play in librarianship.
