A Pinterest Contest for the ‘New Librarian’

A Pinterest Contest for the ‘New Librarian’ | The Information Professional |

Kelly Lux:

"The iSchool wants to know how you define the future of librarianship. What are you doing to define librarianship of the future? What do you envision the future of libraries to be? What are the ideas that have inspired you? If you are a librarian, a student of librarianship, or if you have a passion for the future of libraries, we want to hear from you!

Create a Future of Librarianship Pinterest Board and collect your ideas. Then, send your Board url to the iSchool for a chance to win The Atlas of New Librarianship (just awarded Best Book in Library Literature by ALA!) by David Lankes. Entries will be accepted through Monday, March 19. The top 10 boards will be posted on the iSchool’s website and the three winners will be chosen by public vote. For all you good librarians who already own a copy of Dave’s awesome book – no worries – there’s a prize to be had for you too!"

RT @CILIPinfo: Australian study identifies skills & knowledge library & info pros require in the Web2.0 world #Librarians #Cybrarians...


"The study concluded that a so-called "Librarian 2.0" needs a complex mix of transferable skills, including teamwork, communication, business skills, lifelong learning and personal traits such as creativity, flexibility, adaptability and persistence. However, the study's most interesting finding is that concepts like Web 2.0, Library 2.0 and Librarian 2.0 are "a watershed" for the Australian profession."
