The Librarians Have Arrived! - Carisa Kluver | The Digital Media Diet #digitalshift

The Librarians Have Arrived! - Carisa Kluver | The Digital Media Diet #digitalshift | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

"In my estimation, librarians are the perfect ‘digital docents’ for the 21st century’s digital content. From what I’ve read, many in the field of library sciences have been fretting about where they fit into the digital shift, so the time is now to assert that librarians (as a profession) will be MORE in need by society in the future than ever before. There should be more jobs, not fewer, for library students. They are the professional and ethical curators of the digital world, essential to our cultural transition. And we couldn’t be in better hands!" - See more at: http://digitalmediadiet.com/?p=3205#sthash.G195kvCG.hNauw3dC.dpuf

Placements & Salaries 2013: The Emerging Databrarian - Library Journal

Placements & Salaries 2013: The Emerging Databrarian - Library Journal | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

"The real achievements for the 2012 library and information science graduating class came in the form of emerging jobs and new responsibilities, according to the approximately 1,900 graduates who responded to LJ’s annual Placements & Salaries survey, representing 30.7 percent of the 2012 graduates from the 41 participating programs.

Several new job titles appeared among the survey responses, including emerging technologies librarian, e-learning and distance learning librarian, and e-lending librarian. Social media manager and project manager were also among the popular job titles, and individuals who found positions in academic institutions were as likely to be instructional designers and user experience designers as they were to be reference librarians."

Interesting job titles and functions for new librarians!

Annemarijs's curator insight, October 18, 2013 11:11 AM

Zoals bij Big Data de functie van data-analysten sterk groeiende en invloedrijker wordt, is dat ook bij data-bibliothecarissen of data-(informatie)specialisten naast die van 'e-lending librarian' en social media manager in de VS. Hoe staat het ervoor in NL?

To Share Or Not To Share? - By Rick Anderson

To Share Or Not To Share? - By Rick Anderson | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

What is "sharing" between and among libraries?

 

"In the digital realm, what is typically referred to as “sharing” is actually copying—sometimes legal and sometimes not. Understandably, the ease and ubiquity of uncontrolled copying in a networked digital environment makes copyright holders uneasy. And the fuzzy line between copying and sharing in that environment also makes the question of what it means for libraries to “share” resources much more complicated than it might seem at first blush."

Should libraries share, or not?

 

"We don’t (or shouldn’t) share because 'sharing is what we do as libraries,' still less because sharing is somehow a 'core value' of librarianship. Sharing is a means, not an end. We share in order to provide access, and to the degree that 'sharing' actually means 'copying,' it is legally and ethically complicated."

 

"We live in a radically different information world from the one that gave rise to ILL. Instead of resisting that reality, we should embrace it, rejoicing in the ways it allows us to serve our patrons better."
