I have been on a Dr. Who kick recently, thank you Netflix! So, when a medical librarian friend sent me the link to a talk entitled, “Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Stuff” I was delighted. Phil Bradley, a British Librarian turned Internet Consultant in the UK, does a great job. It is a bit long, but watch the beginning, and skip some of the early doctors if you must.
Of course, the classic phrase, wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff, comes from David Tennent’s Dr. Who: http://youtu.be/vY_Ry8J_jdw
I love the idea of teaching library stuff in the context of Dr. Who. Brilliant. And, I am thinking IT Crowd or Glee wouldn’t be a shabby hook either!
“Doctor Who: You want weapons? We’re in a library. Books are the best weapon in the world. This room’s the greatest arsenal we could have. Arm yourself! (from Silence in the Library episodes 8/Season 4)”
