Supreme Librarians In Metaspace (SLIM)

Two recent college graduates sit in nameless, faceless cubicles, staring at glowing blue computer screens. One laments, "It's like my four years of college just went down the toilet...I'm not helping anyone!" The other says wistfully, "I just wish we could find something better."

Suddenly, a huge majestic half-naked figure (a bit like an older Thor) appears behind them. "YOU SEEK ADVENTURE AND PURPOSE? SEEK NO MORE, FOR YOUR SEARCH HAS BORNE RIPE FRUIT! BEHOLD, I AM...LIBRARIAN!!!!"

Yup, it's a comic book -- a very funny, original, creative and (I think) effective PR project from Emporia State College's School of Library and Information Management. Read the whole thing here.

Y'know, that's pretty effective advertising, at least if you're me. (Nerd still young enough to be potentially interested in grad school, I guess is my demo? lol.) Would that the college where I work had such clever marketing tactics.

I wonder how long they sat around brainstorming other acronymic expansions of "SLIM" so that they could keep the name of their program as the name of the comic...

I feel like someone, somewhen, must have done a filk like "Will the real SLIM graduate please stand up?"
