Join Dan, the Cyberpunk Librarian, for an episode on what happens and what to do when things go down. No, not computers. What do you do when there’s going to be a fight and you’re going to be one of the participants? It’s a problem some librarians face, and there are ways to deal with things when the smile and the empathy doesn’t defuse the situation.
