How users view librarians?

Following on from John's comments I thought this was an apt representation of how library users see us -- the 'librarian action figure': http://www.mcphee.com/amusements/current/11247.html

I, sadly, have one...

More relevant is that according to a 2006 report 'College Students’ Perceptions of the Libraries and Information Resources:A Report to the OCLC Membership'. Dublin, OH: OCLC, 2006 , only 2% of students start a search for electronic resources from a library website...and I guess that this figure has decreased even further over the last 2 years!
