Subject: Writing

Question:

What attributes elevate a novel to literature status?

Inactive
Elaine G.
Answer:

This is somewhat subjective as it relies on a general consensus. But literature is a work that displays a very intelligent and artistic form of writing and story-telling, above the norm. Often there isn’t wider general consensus until a work is fairly old, but age actually has nothing to do with it otherwise. If a novel is particularly clever it could be considered literature overnight… you’ll just have more people disagreeing with the assessment for a while.

Question:

Do printers need wifi?

Answer:

If you intend to use the printer at home with only one computer printing to it and can hardwire the printer to the computer then no, no wifi needed. If you want to be able to print from any device in the house (cell phones, laptops, tablets…) without having to directly connect to the printer, then yes, wifi is needed.

Question:

Is Library Science worth it for the future?

Inactive

Answer:

If you are looking for a rewarding occupation, yes. The profession does seem to be suffering a shortage of jobs for the number of degreed librarians, however, and it’s increasingly a problem that librarians and libraries are undervalued both in academia as well as to the public. This may not be true in countries outside the U.S. This can only be remedied by having more vocal librarians willing to defend the importance of the profession both to the public and administrators. You can increase opportunities if you are willing to be flexible about the type of librarianship you are willing to get into, and where you move to. Public libraries have librarians that specialize in children's, young adult, adult fiction, adult non-fiction… academic libraries have librarians that may focus on research in law, medicine, etc, then there are archives, systems, cataloging, and administrative librarians. General Reference Librarians (who can specialize where needed) and Systems Librarians probably have the most opportunities right now. Archives and Cataloging are competitive.
