Not your traditional librarian anymore!

The "traditional" special librarian role constantly changes. Jobs in traditional library settings, with books all around, are giving way to ones in which the librarian joins a team of information gatherers. The librarian sifts through and analyzes information in advance, rather than just waiting for questions and giving back searches with minimal input. To survive and thrive in the corporate world, more and more librarians have moved out of the library - and often away from the title of "librarian" - and into the research operations in their organizations.
