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 8:11 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?

"Findings from Softlink’s annual Australian School Library Survey have revealed a positive link between literacy results and school library resourcing levels. The 2012 survey found schools with higher than the national average NAPLAN reading literacy scores received above average levels of library funding and staffing. 

A comparable result was identified between schools with low NAPLAN scores and low funding levels, with the relationship’s significance increasing from primary to secondary school.  These results were echoed in the 2010 and 2011 surveys."
