Reel librarians, international style

After last week’s fun double feature with French librarian Mister Pamp @ Notorious Bib and another shout-out on an INALJ post (“Are Librarians Taking over the World?“), I started thinking about reel librarians, international style.

Diving into my stats, I counted site visitors from over 150 countries and territories! Here’s a summarized map of the views by country:

My most frequent international visitors hail from the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, the Philippines, and India.

I also realized I’ve had quite a few referrals from similar sites to mine all over the world, including from:

  • FRANCE:  The aforementioned Notorious Bib, with posts written by the French librarian Mister Pamp. While I focus almost exclusively on reel librarians, Mister Pamp includes analysis on films that feature libraries (mostly public), as well as librarians.
  • IRELAND AND THE UNITED KINGDOM:  Colin, a Dubliner, as well as a Cambridge librarian, runs the Libraries at the Movies blog. Also going beyond the scope of reel librarians, his posts often reveal intriguing connections to different kinds of libraries and/or archives. His posts on science fiction-themed films are some of my favorites. Colin and I have been blogger friends (rivals? colleagues? exchangers of witty repartee? all of the above?) for well over a year now.

It’s so great to have so many international visitors — and that researching the image of librarians and libraries in pop culture is a global theme. Reel librarians unite! 😀
