Blended Librarian

I had heard the term, but had never actually looked at the website or read any of the articles on “blended librarians.” Turns out, I am one!

An academic librarian who combines the traditional skill set of librarianship with the information technologist’s hardware/software skills, and the instructional or educational designer’s ability to apply technology appropriately in the teaching-learning process.

That’s pretty much the description that I use for my skillset whenever I’m interviewed. As a matter of fact, that described a lot of my classmates from SILS. I’m going to investigate what these guys are doing with the concept.
