Twilight Sparkle as Librarian ~ A Potential Self-Evaluation Guide

In a post at Neatorama, Texas librarian John Farrier writes a thorough evaluation of Twilight Sparkle’s skills and shortcomings as librarian. He finds in her actions in one particular episode of My Little Pony “a great metaphor for the value of libraries and librarians in an information age”, and goes on to assess her effectiveness as a librarian. Organization, reference services, staff management, collection development and management, and outreach are all scrutinized with examples and recommendations. Twilight Sparkle, the article concludes, shines in the most important area of librarianship and has good potential to improve her performance in other areas with a little professional development.
