#libmadness round 1 results

The results are in! Check out the updated brackets, crow over your victories, bemoan your defeats, et cetera. Next round, March 24-25.

Some highlights: Five upsets, including Charles Coffin Jewett losing to a guy I’d never heard of before starting this research (Justin Winsor). Looks like y’all like intellectual freedom (Krug) and children’s services (Batchelder). And, to my surprise, no Canadian bloc materialized; Charlton and Bain both went down in the first round. Dewey defeated his protege, and being the librarian of Alexandria was good for a victory — unless you were facing an antipope.
