Knowledge Quest, v36 n1 p70-71 Sep-Oct 2007
While a positive attitude for librarians helps, there is a knowledge base and a research base in the field, a structured set of protocols, and a range of skills that have to be taught and practiced at the preservice level.

She offers several tips for new and mid-career librarians on how they may show more enthusiasm about their library programs.
