Description:
The future for librarians is bright, but not if we continue on our current path. We must bravely envision a new librarianship, one based on knowledge, activism, and embedding ourselves deeply into the academy's daily work. We must work hand in hand with our faculties and students to reinvent our physical spaces, our virtual services, and ultimately our own profession. If we continue to see our value in our collections and materials, we will find ourselves alone in the stacks. This session seeks to lay out a foundation for this new librarianship, with real examples. 

Learning Outcomes:

Understanding the importance of a new foundation for librarianship
Gain awareness of learning theory and examples of its applications to library service
Understand the importance of change and innovation in librarianship 

Audience:

This webcast is for all academic librarians. 

Presenters:
