Best Thing about Being a Librarian

Ada dua hal yang berlari-larian di dalam kepala saya. Satu, traveling. Dua, library science. Parahnya, saya adalah orang yang sulit fokus pada dua hal bersamaan. Ketika saya mengeluyur (?) terus, maka ilmu-ilmu yang berkaitan dengan perpustakaan tidak masuk ke saya. Begitu pun sebaliknya. Demi menjaga pengetahuan saya tetap terisi, biasanya saya membaca artikel-artikel ringan about library science di web-web macam huffingtonpost, buzzfeed, dan semacamnya. Selain artikel, postingan di fesbuk di page yang saya sukai juga bisa menjadi pilihan menarik. Ini salah satunya, (taken from Librarian Problems)
what's the best thing about being a librarian???
Being a know-it-all. Just kidding ;-) The rewarding feeling i get every day knowing i made a difference in someone's life, even if just something small like helping with their i-phone or a legal form. - Cari Taylor

The light going off n someone's mind when theyfound what they were searching for - and my helping them to get there. Triumph over a database, the key item to a research paper, a child's joy in finding a book about his favourite animal -- that look of WOW. - Chynthia Hansen

When someone comes back and say, "thanks, what you did really helped me!". - Jeff Dannaldson

Every day is different and i never know what each will bring. - Ashley Young

Seeing a child's face light up when they get their library card. - Tracy Johnston Ralston

When a student comes in and says their friend told them that i know where all the good books are!!!. - Jenni Shaver

Hugs from my students. They are some of the very best people on the planet. - Amanda L Brasfield

The simple reward of a "Thank You", from your patron after you have connected them to what they needed. - Vikki N Kimoriana Cervantes

You can read books as many as you can. - Suchandra Chakraborty

Cardigans. - Ben Bradley

Being the first to get my hands on the new books!. - Linda La

Shushes people. - Gabriela Icedo

For me, the best thing about being a LIBRARIAN is...
Bekerja dalam tumpukan buku -baru, tua-, bergelut dengan informasi, pengetahuan (sounds awesome, right?!), mengetahui bahwa apa yang kamu lakukan (sangat) berpengaruh pada kehidupan akademik seseorang, melihat binar mata pengguna yang kamu bantu menemukan kebutuhan informasinya dan yang pasti, finally, akhirnya mengetahui akan lewat pintu surga yang mana kelak saya ingin masuk ^_^
