Librarians in the 21st Century was created by a class of graduate students in the Master of Library Science program in the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University, Syracuse, New York.
Their assignment was to create an information resource for the World Wide Web that explored the nature of librarianship at the opening of the 21st Century, looking at the current state of the profession and some directions in which it is likely to evolve.
The students, spread out geographically over the country, created the site through electronic collaboration, without meeting face-to-face.
The site itself embodies both the traditional and the new in library and information science, exhibiting students\' skills in selecting, summarizing and presenting print and electronic information in useful ways, all in an electronic format.
