In an age when researchers have a wealth of information at their fingertips via the internet, librarians need to show that their services are still valuable. Facilitating access to digital services, such as online databases and digital journal stores, may require librarians to acquire new skills, re-train and adapt their workflow. In this interactive workshop, the group will consider the new professional skills and competencies which librarians can benefit from, and discuss ways to plan, prioritise, participate in, record and reflect on professional development activities. Delegates will leave the session with ideas for developing new skills and competencies, and tools and techniques to support them.
