Anyone know any US-based public librarians who are active on the fediverse? I don't just mean aware of it, I mean actively participating on at least one federated social media instance

@darius Come say hi to,, and !

@darius oh and how could I forget about Anyway, all this to say, we out here

@darius That should have been:
@chpietsch and @Lambo
(Maybe they know American colleagues.)

@VictorVenema @darius @chpietsch @Lambo

Canadian librarian checking in.

I know a couple of those fine German colleagues!

@darius Check out the librarian tag on I follow a few folks who meet your criteria.

@darius Yeah one of the people who did a bunch of the early-mid work on Mastodon (e.g. the "welcome, this is what these buttons/concepts are" thing) is a librarian.

(Wait, will be a librarian? Is studying to be? Is-and-also-is-studying? @shel I forget your exact current situation?)

@gaditb @darius darius knows me hehe. i'm in library school

but FYI there's an entire instance specifically for librarians: i believe?

@darius @vickysteeves WHOOPS, not a public librarian. But an awesome librarian nonetheless.

Good luck in your search!

Both my partner and sister have librarian degrees. My sister works as one at a community college, but I'd be surprised if she ever heard of the word fediverse. On the good side of that, she quit using Facebook awhile ago, so maybe there's hope.
