Diverse Initiatives, Common Challenges

by

I’ve posted my presentation for the Texas Library Association Conference on Slideshare, at http://www.slideshare.net/davidshumaker/shumaker-diverseinitiativescommonchallengesapril2014 . It’s entitled “Embedded Librarians: Diverse Initiatives, Common Challenges.”

I especially enjoyed preparing this presentation, because it gave me a chance to some ideas that had been percolating for quite a while: that different sectors of librarianship are experiencing similar pressures and undergoing similar trends, but we are too stovepiped as a profession to notice, most of the time. I took an audience poll at the beginning of the session and was delighted to find that there were public librarians and school library media specialists in the room, as well as academic, corporate, and other specialized librarians.
