Six Suggestions for 21st Century Librarians

In the most recent issue of Info Career Trends, Brian S. Mathews - who blogs as The Ubiquitous Librarian - writes optimistically about the future of the library profession in a world that only seems to be interested in Google, Amazon, Wikipedia, and MySpace.

The article is called Librarian As Entrepreneur: A Blueprint For Transforming Our Future.

In it Mathews writes: "We've entered an age that requires an opportunistic workforce. Here are a few things I've picked up along the way that can help us get started".

The 6 suggestions are:
  • Take risks
  • Initiate change
  • Break the silos
  • Read outside the profession
  • Assess constantly
  • Get involved
