The world we live now is changing fast… too fast.
We move from desktop computers to mobile devices. Smartphones become the default tool to get information. The information is now portable, participatory, and personal.
In times of information overload, what we need more than a result, is a relevant result. And it’s where libraries become extremely useful.
A librarian of the future will help an information consumer sort through available information, and find what is relevant to individual needs.
The infographic you see below was created by Library Science List and oBizMedia some time ago. It was adapted from Pew Internet, of a keynote address for the 2012 State University of New York Librarians Association Annual Conference.
