Sanghamitra Pradhan

Abstract


The paper raises certain concerns about shifting role of librarians in changing context.  It stresses that an appraisal of where they are heading and how they would be prepared to cope with the challenges of rapid and unexpected changes in building effective libraries, is extremely important.  It is suggested that librarians must not only equip themselves with latest knowledge and skill but also must engage in generative thinking to explore new ideas and apply creativity and innovation in their work to ensure increased users satisfaction. The paper explores some viable areas such as a thorough understanding of the upcoming information architecture, creating innovative users’ services, collaboration, vision building, and technological application and initiating entrepreneurial approach through which the librarians can apply creative approach to sustain at present as well as to be in demand in years to come.
