2004 ALA Annual Conference, Orlando FL

Beyond the MLS: Today's Graduates and Tomorrow's Libraries

Date: Saturday, June 26, 2004
Time: 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Place: Orange County Convention Center 311 A-C

What is the future of academic librarianship? Is the MLS relevant to the
academic library of tomorrow? Changing professional roles are creating
significant pressures on traditional competencies and on the organizational
cultures in which librarians work.

The University Libraries Section of ACRL will present an enlivening program
that examines this topic from multiple points of view. A university library
director will discuss changing staffing and organizational needs along with
the recruitment, educational and professional development challenges they
pose. A library/information science dean will discuss new strategies beyond
the MLS for developing professionals who will thrive in the complex new
environments. Two early career librarians will reflect on their expectations
and experiences.
