What Else Do Librarians Do? In the process of acquiring, collecting, organizing, retrieving, and disseminating information, librarians also: • Assist and instruct • Provide services and programs • Utilize technology • Preserve and conserve library materials In the process of doing our work, librarians are also responsible for upholding the basic principles of intellectual freedom, or the right of every individual to both seek and receive information from all points of view without restriction. ALA’s Library Bill of Rights affirms that all libraries are forums for information and ideas and articulates basic principles to guide their services.

Libraries must change with their changing communities. 13 While it is clear that in this virtual world we will continue to need librarians to acquire, collect, organize, retrieve, and disseminate information, what about libraries as physical spaces? An entry titled “Library as Place,” on the Library Garden blog, points out that people are using the Internet in the privacy of their own homes for activities that were previously carried out in public spaces—shopping, banking, talking, writing, doing research, listening to music, reading, and watching movies, for example.

For most of us it is a much longer and more circuitous road—in fact, librarianship may not even be our first career choice. Some people may earn their bachelor’s degrees only to find out that there are no jobs available in their field or that they are not suited to that particular field.
