Awful Library Books

Awful Library Books is a marvelous little blog by a couple of frustrated librarians. The blog features books currently on the shelves of libraries that “are so old, obsolete, awful or just plain stupid that we are horrified that people might be actually checking these items out and depending on the information.”

A particularly inspiring find: Careers in a Library, published in 1978.
