The Archivist’s Serenity Prayer
Archivists, sometimes you need to surrender to a power greater than yourselves, whether that’s your boss, the board of trustees, or a very pushy donor.
The Archivist's Serenity Prayer: Grant me the serenity to accept the collections I cannot decline, Courage to decline the collections I can, And the funding to process the backlog. And what a serene scene! That's "Looking south from Chapman Point, Cannon Beach, Oregon," http://www.flickr.com/photos/osucommons/3226984744
(I have a feeling many of you will want to print this out, so I gave you a very large file to work with!)
