Australians, Americans and librarians from UK

I see hits from these regions so I know someone from these areas is reading. If you are a librarian I would be really interested in a conversation about minority librarians in your country.

I am in Australia and I have noted that many people with mental illness and who are homeless use the libraries here.

I have posted about my experiences with the local library when I was in a full psychotic episode.

I would be interested in hearing about interactions between librarians and people with these difficulties. Regards

Hello there,

good to hear from you. I used to work in a public library and we had public from different walks of life come in. Some were mentally unstable, drunk, psychotic and a few others were normal when they werent' angry. There was never a dull day.

Try a search in our Library Journal

Do you have anything similar - a journal I can access in Australia?
