Thanks in part to technology, the boundaries of library positions are dissolving. It is no longer practical to discuss the profession in terms of traditional library types, and in today's library, the relationship between librarians and technology is stronger than ever. In this informative volume, veteran author Kane interviews dozens of practicing librarians who are highly involved with technology as part of their day-to-day jobs. Revealing the full richness of the profession, Kane Profiles web-services librarians in all types of settings, from veterinary medicine and law to astronomy, market research, and cataloging Offers insights into career opportunities in the library world by challenging traditional notions of what a librarian does Shows examples of real-world librarianship in the fields of technology instruction, digital futures, virtual libraries, and even librarians as entrepreneursWritten in a warm and personal style, Working in the Virtual Stacks presents an exciting future for librarians, already upon us today!
