An exciting update today — Reel Librarians has joined Pinterest!
Why have I joined Pinterest? I kept noticing some traffic come my way from related boards — and back at the start of the year, I even highlighted Saint Mary’s College Library’s Pinterest board that showcases reel libraries and librarians. And some of the screenshots and images from this site have been pinned, so I thought it was high time to generate some bonus content myself, and perhaps generate more traffic to this site, as well. Plus, I like the idea of “curating” collections, or mini-collections, in a more visual way via Pinterest.
So far, I’ve created 12 boards of content pinned from this site, including boards for each category (Classes I through V) of the different films I’ve posted about. If you’re not familiar with how I classify the films, click here. (Basically, I classify films according to how important the reel librarian is to the film.)
And I’ve got a list of ideas for future boards to create (or rather, curate?) along with this site, including:
- character types for both male and female reel librarians
- various lists I’ve posted (like “reel librarians in love” and “killer librarians“)
- quotations from the “Quotable Librarian” posts
- librarian songs and videos
- reel librarian firsts
- master list
