Changing Nature of Cataloguing Librarians in Academic Libraries

Title

Changing Nature of Cataloguing Librarians in Academic Libraries

Description

The shifting research and scholarly landscape, the transformation in higher education, and advances in technology have been reshaping the profession of cataloguing librarianship in academic settings.

There has been a trend in the cataloguing community that cataloguers are transforming their roles from traditional cataloguing into metadata creation. The authors conduct a survey of cataloguing librarians working in US and Canada’s universities to explore new and emerging roles in metadata services. This study focuses on librarians’ activities in: transition from cataloguing to metadata, training for new skill set, challenge and opportunities, metadata support in digital scholarship, etc. It addresses the scope and nature of the new metadata roles, the new skills required to provide new services, and the confidence librarians have in their abilities to perform the new roles. It also reports on cataloguing/metadata librarians’ job satisfaction and their perceived impact on the academic enterprise.
