The 10 Coolest Living Librarians

When the competition is so fierce, how do you rank librarians by coolness? Flavorwire's Emily Temple found a way. She's compiled descriptions of ten hip and innovative librarians, including MetaFilter's own Jessamyn West:

The tagline of West’s website,, is “putting the rarin back in librarian,” which should give you an idea about her attitude. A library technologist based in Vermont who spends her time thinking and talking about “the digital divide,” she is the irreverent, awesome librarian of the future (and also the present).

P.S. If the list was expanded, I'd linclude io9's Jess Nevins, an expert on pulp fiction and comics, as well as Amanda Brennan, the resident librarian at Know Your Meme.
