Special Collections librarians, indeed all librarians, are not merely lovers of rare books and Dewey; we are not merely wearers of glasses and tweed. Just as the ring was precious to Gollum, so too is the process of acquiring skills and using them precious for librarians. We are expert at knowing how to learn new skills and adapting said skills for our needs. We embody the student when we learn new subject matter and skills. This paper discusses how librarians are adept at acquiring knowledge and skills and then investigates how we take that learning experience and use it to form a learning process for the user. In addition this paper describes how the user can then adapt this process for subsequent learning experiences. This paper is based on my personal experiential learning journey in the health sciences following a Twitter exchange.
