Abstract:

"The skills of digital librarianship are more crucial than ever, and these same skills are in high demand outside the field, from tech startups undertaking digitization projects to digital humanities centers bringing together professors, computer scientists, and information technologists. Map out your career in this fast-growing field with the full range of perspectives gathered in this clear, concise overview of the core concepts and competencies of digital librarianship. Twenty-one experienced practitioners from a variety of settings offer realistic views of today's job market, typical project dynamics, and employer expectations. Whether you're a new graduate just starting out or a seasoned professional transitioning from a more traditional area such as cataloging or archives, you'll benefit from this book's valuable coverage of topics such as: activities and roles of the digital librarian, including management of digital projects and collaboration; developing and using transferable skills; becoming familiar with metadata; how digital librarians are re-shaping scholarly publishing; the concept and framework of digital preservation best practices; technical competencies such as XML and content management systems. Familiarity with digital practices is increasingly important for all information professionals, and this book offers a solid foundation in the discipline." -- Amazon.com.
