Mr. Library Dude is Joe Hardenbrook, Reference and Instruction Librarian at Carroll College in Wisconsin. In his blog, Hardenbrook writes about "library-related topics that interest me, things I've tried, or things I want to know more about." Many of these blog updates may appeal to academic librarians, along with those considering going into librarianship. For example, in one recent post, entitled "Academic Librarian: A Week in the Life," Hardenbrook outlines every task he performed on the job in the week, partially in hopes of debunking some common myths about the work of academic librarians. In another recent post, Hardenbrook shares a slideshow he presented at the Wisconsin Association of Academic Libraries (WAAL) conference called "Driving Change with Students, Staff, and Space." In another recent post, which may be of special interest to information literacy educators of all stripes, Hardenbrook provides resources for teaching media and news literacy.
