Dear Willard, et al

I just wanted to point out, in the email sent to the list, the ominous sentence 

> This survey is for scholars. Another survey is planned for librarians.

Working in an iSchool, and working closely with librarians in many aspects of my work in Digital Humanities, and seeing how many Librarians are actively promoting and engaging in Digital Humanities research, tools, and techniques, I think this is a dangerous and false distinction.

In fact, I number my Librarian colleagues among the finest scholars I know. 

There are plenty of librarians on this list: rest assured your skills and input are appreciated as scholarly work. 

best wishes,
