The purpose of this paper is to emphasize the two basic skills necessary for today’s librarian to be successful in a library environment where technology and copyright are evolving and thus changing the manner by which a transition from print resources to digital can be successfully implemented.
Literature review and commentary on this topic that has been addressed by professionals, researchers and practitioners.
A combination of technology skills and an understanding of digital copyright issues are strengths that, for today’s librarians, are less unique and more typical components of a librarian’s skill set.
The value in addressing this issue is to highlight the background that today’s librarian must bring to the profession in a highly digitized and more legally determined library environment.
