Are you a librarian

A while ago people were taking this quiz (mentioned on It’s All Good) – but I figured I’d fail – so I didn’t. Today I took it and to my surprise I got a fitting score:

Aspiring Librarian
You scored 44% on knowledge of librarianship.
You’re getting there – you know more than most people about libraries. Maybe you’re starting Library School and getting yourself ready to take over the profession. Or maybe you already work in a library but just don’t know some of the history and details. But, you’re more of an aspiring librarian than a full-fledged librarian.

I wish they told me which I got right and which I got wrong – I was guessing on a lot of questions.

  1. Well I got “Aspiring Librarian” (41%), but I think maybe the classifications should be:

    - 0-20% Not a Librarian
    - 10-30% Librarian
    - 30-50% Knowledgeable Librarian
    - 50-70% American Librarian
    - 70%+ American Librarian and Active ALA Member

    … not a very internationally and culturally independent test !
