Conference Proceeding: THE FUTURE OF LIBRARIANSHIP: A ROUNDTABLE

Please join us for a wide-ranging, thought-provoking discussion on the future of our profession. The participants will bring expertise from a variety of perspectives on the innovations currently taking place and ones they envision will take place in the future. Given the rapidly changing nature of librarianship, what skill sets will librarians and information professionals need to fit this new reality? How can librarians prepare for the new changes? At the same time, how can we retain and hone our core skills in this new marketplace? How can we encourage information and cultural literary and sustained critical analysis in the era of Twitter and apps and Internet surfing?
