What librarians, cooks and call centre workers have in common
Anonymous Patron sends "this from "ExplodedLibrary.com Think libraries ever had a monopoly on providing information to people? How did we lose it? What does that mean for the future of how we do our jobs? What does working in a call center have to do with being a librarian?
Our challenge as librarians is to secure our place in the information marketplace. Itâ€™s a waste of time for us to try to be all things to all people in what has become something really huge. It is better to do a few things really well.
Are librarians the fast food workers, or the high end chefs of the future?"
