Updating the Library

I visit our local library about twice a week. To get books I have transferred from branches and to browse. Today I watched as a librarian carefully helped a patron figure out how to use a terminal to access their system, do a search and use other online resources. It struck me how the job of the librarian has changed. There is an article in this weeks Book Update: In a Web Age, Library Job Gets Update, covers how this has changed in schools. Another change in how we read and in the infrastructure of reading.
