Description

National Library and Information Technicians Symposium, 27-29 September 2017 North Sydney: bridge to knowledge
 
This conference presentation (PowerPoint slides) supports the paper which discusses the challenges and opportunities for library and informaton professionals working in the GLAMR sector.
 
Libraries, archives and museums are merging in terms of management and often in terms of funding. Whilst this may be viewed as a negative merger by some information professionals, it is time to change this view and to see the convergence of the GLAMR sector as an opportunity for trained information professionals. Now is the time to view yourself not as a library technician or a library professional, but in terms of becoming an information professional with the skills, abilities and aptitude to work throughout the GLAMR sector and bridge the idealogical gap between all parts.
