A librarian should never commit to one library database vendor/interface. Eventually that vendor will merge with someone else, leaving you with an outdated Wilson Web logo tattooed on your midriff.

Actually, I think that tattoo gets cooler once the company's gone. The hipster librarian would be incomplete without an anachronistic database provider tattoo to go with her vintage clothes and portable typewriter.

Our staff kitchenette has a "Faxon Loves its Libraries" mug that we all enjoy the irony of.
