Interpreting Library Job Ads

...from Biblia's Warrior Librarian Weekly:

" ... extensive collection ... "

no weeding has been done for 20 years

" ... maintain archives ..."
several hundred boxes of old papers need filing

" ... multimedia skills are essential... "
we really wanted to hire a computer technician, but the board insisted on a librarian for some reason

" ... must be well organised ... "
things are so chaotic here, someone has to sort out all the mess

" ...stimulating environment ..."
free coffee provided - no de-caff

" ... ability to communicate ... "
everyone is at each other's throats

" ... have appropriate qualifications ... "
that won't be considered in our decision - we just go on gut feeling here . Humor, Much more
