Abstract:

Librarians have embraced the challenges and opportunities of the global information revolution; transforming their profession to accommodate a rapidly expanding, interconnected global community. Stretching, molding, and applying the traditional concepts in library and information science, librarians have designed and implemented creative service to accommodate the information needs of their patrons, wherever they may be. Hailing from academic, public, school, private, corporate, private, and the not-for-profit sectors, librarians are actively engaging their talents with this latest information revolution, changing the way in which information is created, organized, and shared.

Global Librarian focuses on the vital role played by librarians and information specialists, highlighting innovative programs and services developed to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse, international communities while delivering access to high-quality information services.
