I think in the several years I've been doing this weblog, this is the first time I've done one of these tests.... However, the Are You a Librarian test was reasonably accurate (certainly so for those who have seen Anne and my bookshelves!)
| Aspiring Librarian|
You scored 41% on knowledge of librarianship.
| You're getting there - you know more than most people about libraries. Maybe you're starting Library School and getting yourself ready to take over the profession. Or maybe you already work in a library but just don't know some of the history and details. But, you're more of an aspiring librarian than a full-fledged librarian. |

I get the same score. I guess I score badly on the more obscure history-of-the-library stuff.
What public library is your local library, and are you using anything to catalog your personal collection?
Our local public library is the Sulzer Regional branch of the Chicago Public Library. They aren't as forward moving as the AA library work you've been showcasing - Oak Park apparently does more online outreach, for example.
We haven't been cataloging our collection yet. I've feinted at Delicious Monster, Collector, and LibraryThing a bit, but nothing seriously.
