Thanks to @tinamreynolds for pointing me to this blog post on the adoption of social media in your career. The Gypsy Librarian makes a compelling case for the future of librarianship requiring the retention of, dare I label them, "traditional" skills including the ability to conduct a reference interview. He speaks out against the notion that we either adopt social media or cease to be librarians. I see many people who are capable and confident information professionals, some of whom choose to embrace social media in their jobs or CPD whereas some are either unable to use such technologies due to company policy or don't see it as a part of their role. Does this make them any less competent? Of course not.
But it's an interesting discussion and raises many questions.
The other question to which I need an answer stems from last night's episode of Spooks - What's Harry's favourite opera?
