I’m re-posting this because I want to make sure I’m not being extremely critical. I appreciate that someone took the time to make this infographic and the graphics ARE really good, but it really needs to be redone. Read it. The grammar is atrocious at times. However, perhaps whoever made this is not a native English speaker.
On the other hand, I cannot make an good excuse as to why Boole is mentioned both under #3 and #8. If this is a chronological account of the evolution of librarians and library science, I do not understand the jump to the 1950s and 1960s and then another jump back to the nineteenth century.
Again, the graphics are great and I have zero talent in that department, but next time, perhaps someone else should have been consulted while writing up the text. I’ve made many exhibits and displays with labels of the items exhibited and I HAVE to get someone else to proofread what I do. Even if my spelling and grammar is usually impeccable, it doesn’t mean that I never err through typos and the such.
Moral of the Story: Get someone to proofread anything that you work on that takes time and effort. Don’t leave it to chance. We are librarians and we are expected to know English just as well as someone with a PhD in the subject.
I’m also curious about why it says here that the first female librarian didn’t begin working until 1954, yet the infographic claims the first woman librarian was instated a century earlier in 1854. Typo?
