The purpose of this paper is to consider the challenges facing academic librarians in an increasingly networked environment.
Draws on theoretical perspectives and the literature to argue the case for academic librarians to develop their theoretical understanding of communication and pedagogy and the practical implications.
Suggests five distinct areas of opportunity in which librarians can develop their role.
The paper states that new roles are opening up for academic librarians, roles which build on their traditional skills but challenge them to acquire new ones.
