Library Staff of the Future: Through A Crystal Ball

What does the future hold for information professionals and librarians? Will the MLS continue to be required? In academic libraries on campus, what does the future look like? With increased outsourcing of cataloging and virtual reference what will campus librarians do? Will academic libraries simply operate out of a gigantic warehouse in a place like Dublin, Ohio? What is the future of corporate information centers and government libraries? The profession is literally evolving and the only constant is change. Join us for a look ahead, twenty years into the future. Let’s imagine the year is 2026…an SLA Odyssey as we look ahead.
