I know this has been making the rounds, but after my font-nerd post back in March and my research post on marrying a librarian, I’d feel remiss if I didn’t post this outstanding video of librarians doing a cover of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.” Sure, the production values aren’t quite as professional-looking as the font-nerd video, but these are real librarians Gaga-ing it up in the library! (Keep an eye out in the video for the famous Nancy Pearl, model for the infamous Librarian Action Figure!).
Plus, in what is simply pure genius, the rewritten lyrics actually convey some basic concepts of bibliographic instruction! (For those non-academics out there, “bibliographic instruction” is what librarians are doing when they teach you how to use the library. FYI: My librarian wife’s favorite line in the whole song is “Don’t forget the databases!”)
Fun, and educational? Win!
