this RBMS talk on precarity labor that ended with ageism is why I am so hell bent on retiring in my 50s, come hell or high water. Ageism is extremely real even in librarianship, I expect it to get even worse, and tons of people are forced into early retirement due to workplace ageism. I would like to do it on my own terms as much as I can.
glammr.us is a space for folks interested in productive conversation about, well, galleries, libraries, archives, museums, memory work and records. It is pronounce “glamorous” as our work are often charmingly or fascinatingly attractive, especially in a mysterious or magical way. Sometimes it is also full of excitement, adventure, and unusual activity (oh, yes). It is also inspired by Toys’R’us to showcase the fun playful side of glammr.us tooters. But you don't necessarily have to only post about GLAMMR-related topics, bring your whole self. Talk about fun things you saw, your exciting day or even your struggles.
