All libraries are learning spaces, no matter how unusual they appear to be. Libraries support information literacy and lifelong learning.  They build communities.  They empower individuals.  They protect our right to know.  And what's more, they preserve our nation's cultural heritage.

Librarians have gotten a bad rap in the past, represented as bookwormish and ‘uncool’. But the fact is that today, librarians are really beginning to build up a name for themselves with their deep knowledge base and their access to huge stores of information. And social media has made it easier than ever to connect with librarians that are far beyond the norm.

So... if the K-12 folks don't figure out how important we are in the VERY near future, it looks like we could become valuable assets to corporations trying to manage their data. Probably pays more anyway...

 

However, this quote also resonates with me...

"Information Architecture is an emerging discipline with roots in librarianship; consulting firms offer their experience of creating web sites, intranets, and other interactive elements in order to improve their efficiency and usability."  


Can I now call myself an Information Architect?

1. montrer, ne pas dire
