One thought on “Positive risk taking in Librarianship

  1. I’m currently working as Serials Librarian at MMU. I know exactly how you feel about this, as my role has changed over the past 3.5 years I’ve been doing it. As our print collection has dwindled, my role has become more focused on buying in e-packages to replace the print, reviewing all of our subscriptions and suggesting where we can make changes. Very different to where I began as a new professional! I have other duties too – traditional HE Librarian duties of teaching info and digital lit – but my main love is collection management. I read this post in a state of shock, as I still hold the title ‘Librarian’. However, more of us are becoming ‘blended’ professionals, with titles to suit. I love being a ‘Librarian’ and should my title ever change (which it will), will still refer to myself to outsiders as one!
