Top Ten Librarian Retronyms

I just came across a list of retronyms for non-internet librarians from an Information Today contest.

Here are the top ten submissions:

10. Shelf pointer librarian
9. Analog librarian
8. Legacy librarian
7. Librarian unplugged
6. 3x5 librarian
5. Internot librarian
4. Retrobrarian
3. (Insert the name of your supervisor here) librarian
2. Wallenda librarian (flying high without the net)
1. Librarian 1.0

Hey Wordacious, this top ten list is awesome. Librarian 1.0 is funny, it's true in many cases since some career librarians have not adopted the new technology. I'm luck that in my business school we have a librarian who is very up to date and is a great resource for digital information. You can post this to our site http://www.toptentopten.com/ and link back to your site. We are trying to create a directory for top ten lists where people can find your site. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.
