"More than machinery, we need humanity."
At its founding, LibrarianShipwreck was intended “as a resource, soapbox, forum, and gutter for those interested in the future of librarianship. Amongst our interests are libraries, archives, activism, radical librarianship, history, technology, cats, sweater vests, and other fascinating things. We hope to rile you up.”
Since then (as the site’s actual content makes obvious) the main topics of the site have become focused primarily on technology, critical theory, and impending doom. This may or may not be a result of the fact that the main author on the site may or may not be pursuing a PhD that sits at the intersection of the history of technology and disaster studies (with a dissertation project focusing on Y2K). Beginning in March of 2020 this site has also provided a home to weekly compendiums of Plague Poems.
