Library Association of the City University of New York presents

The LACUNY Institute 1998

Retooling, Retraining, Revitalizing:
Transforming Ourselves for the Future

The ever-rising role of technology in librarianship and the equally increasing demand for teaching skills are only two of the many changes for which MLS degrees have only partially prepared working librarians. Today's librarians must be managers, educators, technicians, and negotiators--sometimes all in a single day.

How do librarians learn to expand upon their existing skills to deal with this new environment? Find out from an academic library director, a public library administrator, an information science school dean, and a panel of academic librarians.
