Jessica Olin, “When the Answer is Always No (or at least it seems to be),” Letters to a Young Librarian:

Pull quote: “Lots of people espouse an attitude of, ‘it’s easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission.’ I’m not saying you should never do this, but I don’t recommend doing it at the beginning of your career (or during early days of a new job), and you should only do it sparingly if you are later in your career or in your tenure at a particular institution. Do this early on or too much, people will think they can’t trust you.”
