The Changing Role of Librarians in Learning

“The Changing Role of Librarians in Learning” Vatican Library School Lecture. Rome, Italy.

Abstract: As our understanding of learning has changed, so too must librarianship. As we have moved from teaching an act done to people to learning as an act controlled by the individuals, librarianship shifts from passive transmission of information to active facilitation of the learning process.

Special thanks to the Vatican Library School, the U.S. Embassy in Rome, and the Koninklijk Nederlands Instituut Rome.
