The Electronic Librarian: Inching Towards the Revolution
Cuesta, Emerita M.
Acquisitions Librarian, v17 n33-34 p53-62 2005
Electronic resources are transforming the way librarians work. New technological skills have been added to the librarian's tool kit. Some libraries have undertaken large-scale organizational reconfigurations to meet the challenges of the digital environment. Yet libraries still rely on traditional functions such as acquisitions, cataloging, and reference. This paper examines job advertisements published online between 2001 and March 2003 to determine the degree of overlap between traditional and electronic duties in the modern library organization, and draws some conclusions about the state of the digital library.
