Whovian in the Library

The Doctor Who episode “Silence in the Library” is particularly popular with Doctor Who fans who are librarians, since the episode is set in a planet-sized library. Butler University recently hired a new librarian, Franny Gaede, who is a Whovian. And so soon after getting to campus, this appeared on her door:

I love that, since she is a librarian, Franny used a font that is in the public domain, and an image from a coloring book which permits reproduction for non-commercial use. Then, to top it all off, she put the Creative Commons license indicator in the bottom right corner.

Being a Doctor Who fan and a librarian: you're doing it right!

I just had to get my photo taken with the sign!

    Maybe she would have success explaining the purpose of a Creative Commons license to Joel Watts.

    It *is* a spectacular episode; although I’m a history teacher and not a librarian…

      Yes, but it deserves repeated mentions.

      Apparently Diagon Alley is also out there on Google Maps to be explored.

      Apparently the maps easter egg doesn’t work in the preview version of the new google maps. Works fine in classic mode.
