Misbehave With Me

A great commencement address to a group of baby librarians by Dorothea Salo…

Now, graduates, I want you to remember that misbehaving comes in all sizes. I’ve been talking about great big misbehaviors, but depending on what the policies are like where you work, giving a homeless person a library card, waiving a fine for someone who just lost a job, letting a frazzled undergraduate drink a cup of coffee in peace, criticizing a publisher on a blog, digitizing some kinds of information, refusing to exploit other kinds of information even when big online services make it seem all right—any of these actions could be misbehaviors. They could also mean the world to someone. So you don’t have to aim to misbehave big, just aim to misbehave right!
