What I do library campaign

For our What I Do Library campaign, The Ontario Library Association Advocacy Committee asked librarians and library workers what their working days really looked like. Delegates at the OLA’s Super Conference 2012 shared their roles in writing and by tweeting using the hashtag #whatIdolibrary.  We transcribed the answers and put them together in a Wordle.
