Alexina's curator insight, October 19, 2013 1:32 PM

There is an greatly increased demand for trained librarians with knowledge about digital libraries, ebooks, creating physical and digital archives. Today's and tomorrow's librarians have to be part techie. Being a librarian does NOT mean you only work for a library. Any organization that needs to organize information and present it digitally is a prime career location for librarians with the right skills. Two of the three American Library Association (ALA) accredited master degree programs in California teach these skills. My alma mater, San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science <http://www.ala.org/cfapps/lisdir/listing.cfm?id=1408&gt;, which has totally online programs, is in the forefront of teaching both technical skills needed and traditional librarian skills. The infographic was created for the very new University of Southern California's online Master of Manaagement in Library and Information Science http://librarysciencedegree.usc.edu/

I bibliotecari in crisi e la rivoluzione (attesa) degli open data

I bibliotecari in crisi e la rivoluzione (attesa) degli open data | Digital Libraries | Scoop.it
di Antonio Sgobba Nelle ultime settimane la crisi del Sistema bibliotecario nazionale non è stata discussa in paludati convegni o in seminari ristretti.
Sara's insight:

Di soddisfazione come le voci che emergono dal coro siano di ragazzi in gamba, come Enrico Francese ed Andrea Zanni, che nel loro recente passato hanno una formazione che include anche il Master DILL. E come sia evidente che con queste idee i NUOVI BIBLIOTECARI non siano in crisi...

 

It is amazing to hear among the others the voices of Enrico Francese and Andrea Zanni, alumni of the DILL International Master's. And it is clear that thanks to their ideas the NEW LIBRARIANS are not suffering for a crisis but actors of a revolution.
