Shhhh – Don’t tell my husband

My husband is an avid gamer and has tried over the years to get me to join him in his role-playing sessions – but I never get into it. Now, Terence J. Fitzgerald writes in Library Journal that I should use role-playing games to help me be a better librarian – a more playful librarian!

More playful techniques such as role-playing, mapping storyboards, creating visual collages, and writing personas may seem unscientific and hard to justify, but for librarians these methods can be powerful tools to study users and conceptualize and develop new services and programs.

There are other issues I want to address in this article, but it’s time to leave for work.
