“Library” is NOT a Skill or Expertise, LinkedIn

Dear LinkedIn,

Library is not a skill or expertise.

Collection development? That’s an expertise. Information literacy? Sure, I guess that’s an expertise. Public speaking? Definitely. But library? And given my experience, many have endorsed me for it. Library is a place you work. Some would even say that library is a package of services your community or place of education can offer. But who would put library on their actual résumé as a skill? I suggest we stop endorsing each other for library as a skill on LinkedIn.

Do you agree or disagree with me?
