Bernadette Colley is a solo Library Administrator at Temple Street Children’s University Hospital, Dublin, Ireland. She shares her thougths on being a librarian.
What is your favourite thing about being a librarian?
“Finding the ‘golden result’ – the article/search strategy that is exactly what the user was looking for, whether they knew about it or not”.
What do you like about being a librarian?
“I get a great deal of satisfaction from matching research to its intended audience – there’s a lot of relevant research that isn’t getting “found” and this is a shame. I also like that it is an evolving profession and therefore challenging – no chance to ever become complacent”.
