Crisis in Librarianship

This poster provides an overview of the discourse currently available on the crisis culture in librarianship and tries to understand why librarians have consistently predicted the demise of the library and librarianship over the past few decades. A brief examination of the literature points to fears over the economy, advancements in technology and communication within the profession have developed this crisis culture. An analysis of what this means for the future of librarianship and what we can do to improve this discourse indicates that librarianship is in a period of tremendous change with enormous potential.

    It is not possible to read what is on the poster based on a photo of it. Why not post the file that was used to make the poster so we can read it?
