Oxford librarian 'sacked' for Harlem Shake video

A group of students are appealing to college officials who they say fired a librarian because she allowed about 30 students to film their version of the global YouTube sensation in the library.

OXFORD UNIVERSITY STUDENTS are rallying behind a librarian who they say was unfairly sacked after students filmed themselves performing the “Harlem Shake” in a college library.

Laura O’Brien, president of the Middle Common Room at the university’s St. Hilda’s College, says students are investigating Calypso Nash’s dismissal.

The Middle Common Room represents the college’s postgraduate students. The Junior Common Room, which represents undergraduates, said it is asking for Nash to be reinstated.

The students say that college officials fired Nash because she allowed about 30 students to film their version of the global YouTube sensation in the library.

Oxford University said Wednesday that Nash was a postgraduate student working part-time as a librarian, but declined to confirm she was dismissed.
