26 Jul The Future of Librarians
Degree Tutor has recently published interviews about the future of librarians, it makes very interesting reading. I haven’t had chance to read many yet, but have read the interviews of Librarian In Black and Phil Bradley, both of whom talk about the importance of librarians to utilise Web 2.0 technology.
My view is that the future for librarians is very exciting, the so called “information society” calls for librarians to help organise that information and enable people to find the information useful to them. I don’t know if we’ll continue to be known as librarians for much longer though, maybe more of the “information specialist” type titles will become common.
