Very simplistic and a bit insulting to librarians.

"You may feel intimidated or a little embarrassed to approach the librarian. They might look busy, frazzled, old, confused, or mean. It is normal to have reservations. In fact, there is a term for it: library anxiety." (p. 57). Seriously? We "look" busy? How about we ARE but we are only too happy to help! Frazzled? OLD? CONFUSED? MEAN? This author needs to check out 21st century librarianship!

Might be good for college freshman.
