There is a meme going around the biblioblogosphere at the moment in which librarians are writing about their route in to librarianship.
The meme was borne out of a discussion that started on Twitter. Woodsiegirl followed this up with a post on her blog, Organising Chaos, and this got others posting their stories. Seeing that the meme was escalating Ned Potter has set up the Library Routes Project wiki where all the blog posts (including mine!) are being collated.
I thought this might be something a bunch of future librarians, who are considering their options, might be interested in.
