How To Become a 21st Century Librarian

How To Become a 21st Century Librarian | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

Before deciding if librarianship is right for you, make sure you understand what today’s librarians do all day. If you want quiet and lots of time to read, think again. Today’s libraries are full of collegial, and sometimes even downright noisy, collaboration, creation, and community activities, and are as much about technology as print on paper.

 

Modern librarians need to be comfortable and conversant with technology, be willing and able to speak in public, and possess people skills and a commitment to lifelong learning, as the profession and the expertise necessary for success are constantly changing.

New Librarianship and the Library as Platform

New Librarianship and the Library as Platform | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it
"New Librarianship and the Library as Platform" Ticer 15th International Summer School on Digital Libraries 2012, Tillburg, Netherlands. Abstract: Change in academic libraries is nothing new.

 

In his most recent lecture presented in Tillburg, Netherlands, R. David Lankes enjoins librarians to be "active in online education, new models of student learning, and helping the faculty adjust to disruptive change."  Furthermore, he suggests, "Rather than being the heart of the university centered on a collection, libraries must become hubs that spread new practice throughout the organization."
