<chuckle>  Could well be.  Library school is two & a half decades
behind me at this point, so I can't swear to it, but I'd almost put
money on there having been at least a 1/3rd mix of men in my
class back in the mid-70s, years before the silicon explosion.
Then again memory is kind so maybe I'm remembering more
than there really were. :)

What has struck me as interesting is that the library profession has perhaps
become less of a "woman" thing coincident to the increasing
"technologification" of it!  As it got computerized, more guys are involved,
which seems like just an extension of the old stereotypes of guys and
machines.  Funny how all these men suddenly have to learn to type...
