The purpose of this paper is to draw attention to the unique characteristics of Millennial librarians. These characteristics are related to larger issues having current and future relevance to Millennial librarians, colleagues of other generations, as well as library administration.
The paper explores training, leadership and work‐life balance in relation to Millennial librarians.
Certain defining characteristics of the Millennial generation need to be recognized and discussed by library administration and librarians of all generations.
Surveying the literature related to Millennial librarians' possible implications can assist in creating increased awareness of this group.
Much research focuses on engaging and teaching Millennials as library users. Infrequently discussed, however, is the concept of Millennials as librarians and the paper attempts to fill this gap.
