Librarianship Is a Global Profession... If You Want It to Be, by Jan Holmquist

Librarianship Is a Global Profession... If You Want It to Be, by Jan Holmquist | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
RT @janholmquist: It Is a Global Profession...

Jan Holmquist:

"One of the things I have learned about this profession in recent years (but wish I had known when I was brand new to libraries) is that it is in fact a global profession. The economy is global, information is global, and a lot of (popular) culture is global too. It makes sense, then, that the people navigating all of this are part of a global profession too."

[...]

"I have been involved in projects with people from all over the globe. Right now a library is being built in India crowdfunded by librarians from all over the world via Buy India a Library project. Another crowdfunding project with a worldwide team, Help This Week in Libraries, made a huge difference for that knowledge sharing library show. I am working on another global project with an American librarian right now. I can’t share details just yet, but you will hear more soon."
