On August 12, 2012, In India we celebrated Librarian's Day, being the Birth Anniversary of the Father of Library Science in India, Dr. S. R. Ranganathan. Today I came across this article "Rediscovering Ranganathan" by David Weinberger on Library Soup weblog here:
The above article talks about how Colon Classification developed by Ranganathan in 1933 has grown into the most useful systems for organization of information in the internet age.

Terry Pratchett about Librarian's mentioned on Candy Schwartz's website. I find it really interesting, amusing and all the more fascinating being a Library professional myself.
