Originally the Commencement address

DeCandido has written \"Ten Graces for New Librarians\" a very
informative guide for all new librarians. Read it
love it, live it!
The ten graces:
join a listserv
make your education every day
\"Make your own luck\"
Find and keep and nurture your sense of humor
tender openness toward those we serve
keep your life and work in balance
Change is the only surety
Develop a strong sense of your own self-worth
Make your particular vision part of the cultural memory
of librarianship
librarianship is the connecting of people to ideas
