Shopping for our favourite librarians?
Here are a few ideas. Let us know your favourite places and ideas.

These Librarian Temporary Tattoos will allow you to show the world exactly how idiosyncratic you are and then, after seeing the world's confused look, you can help the world look up idiosyncratic in the dictionary at the reference desk. Literate 4 Life!


For the "guybrarian" in your life or for the librarian avenger in all of us.


The Farmington Public Library Foundation has taken "Shhhh" to new heights. Be proud... "shush" someone today, but perhaps at the theatre instead!?


And look at what the lads at the Unshelved Comics offer. Get your own Library SWAT team jacket. They're great for visibility if your library is tucked away somewhere. By wearing the SWAT jacket, everyone will know there is a library *somewhere* in your company or department!


And some of the best of the best right here... T-shirts including: Queen of Reference, of Cataloguing, etc; Kiss me I'm a Librarian, and lots of other cheesy fun! Jewelery too!


And in news of new search engines... I really don't think the point is searching - it's more about Ms Dewey talking back you... she is full of AT-TI-TUUUUDE. Check her out. You need an up to date version of Flash and good sound to enjoy the full experience! "Don't just stand there like you've misplaced your translator," says she," SPEAK!" Plug in your search terms and Ms Dewey comes back with um... interesting commentary as well as results!


Any other good ones out there?
