Creating the Next Generation of Librarians

This is to let you all know that our book, Staff Planning in a Time of Demographic Change, has been published. There was a nice author signing at CLA and ALA. I wrote the chapter on Next Generation Librarians in the Workplace. The information about the book and the table of contents, which was edited by Vicki Whitmell of the Ontario Legislative Library, is on the Scarecrow Press website.
I think that this book is timely. As president of the Canadian Library Association, I appointed a task force on the Report of the 8Rs which delivered the results of thousands of interviews of library workers in Canada. I am looking forward to seeing action on this issue.
I also think that the conferences, training, seminars and e-learning put on by vendors such as SirsiDynix will be well informed by this research. We absolutely must focus on bringing all sectors and demographics of library work into the changing world of information.
