So You're Going to Library School...

Right now this profession needs people who are eager to experiment, and who are willing to make mistakes. We need people who can think flexibly. We need people who aren’t satisfied doing things the way they’ve always been done, who aren’t looking for a job where they can learn a skill and then perform it ad nauseam until retirement. Things are moving fast, and you have to be willing to move faster. You have to be willing to strive for perfection while going forward and implementing good enough.
