It’s a guybrarian thing.

A new entry appeared last week in Meriam-Webster’s OpenDictionary:
guybrarian (noun) : A male librarian in a female dominated field.
With so many women studying library science, Tim felt conspicuous as the only guybrarian in the class.

Thanks Varlene for this unusual, but accurate description of the handful of aspiring guybrarians in my current MLIS program.
