  8. 8. 1. New technologies will both expand and limit who has access to information An ever-expanding digital universe will bring a higher value to information literacy skills such as basic reading and competence with digital tools. People who lack these skills will face barriers to inclusion in a growing range of areas. The nature of new online business models will heavily influence who can successfully own, profit from, share or access information in the future. Changing demand for changing times http://trends.ifla.org
  9. 9. 2. Online education will democratise and disrupt global learning The rapid global expansion in online education resources will make learning opportunities more abundant, cheaper and more accessible. There will be increased value on lifelong learning and more recognition of non-formal and informal learning. Changing demand for changing times http://trends.ifla.org
  10. 10. 3. The boundaries of privacy and Data Protection will be redefined Expanding data sets held by Governments and the private sector will support the advanced profiling of individuals, while sophisticated methods of monitoring and filtering communications data will make tracking those individuals cheaper and easier. Serious consequences for individual privacy and trust in the online world could be experienced. Changing demand for changing times http://trends.ifla.org
  11. 11. 4. Hyper-connected societies will listen to and empower new voices and groups More opportunities for collective action are realised in hyper-connected societies – enabling the rise of new voices and promoting the growth of single-issue movements at the expense of traditional political parties. Open Government initiatives and access to public sector data will lead to more transparency and citizen-focused public services. Changing demand for changing times http://trends.ifla.org
  12. 12. 5. The global information economy will be transformed by new technologies Proliferation of hyper-connected mobile devices, networked sensors in appliances and infrastructure, 3D printing and language-translation technologies will transform the global information economy. Existing business models across many industries will experience creative disruption spurred by innovative devices that help people remain economically active later in life form any location. Changing demand for changing times http://trends.ifla.org
  13. 13. As Information Professionals, we are committed to helping information users, companies and communities navigate these changes successfully
  14. 14. ‘Professionalism’ in this new environment is a combination of technical expertise – represented by the Professional Knowledge and Skills Base (PKSB) - and how you deliver that expertise as a service to your community, organisation or company. An Information Professional: • Builds trust • Behaves ethically • Strives for excellence • Adds value • Champions their profession • Leads or instigates change Proud to be professional
  15. 15. Ethics Reviewing and updating our Code of Ethics to reflect the changing nature of the profession Environment Updating our skills model to future-proof the skills of our profession Generic skills Encouraging the development of ‘soft’ skills and leadership in the profession Technical skills Maintaining and evolving our core professional/technical skills
  16. 16. The ‘supply chain’ for Information Professionals Rapid political, social, economic & technological change Changing behaviours & expectations for information users Changing demand for information skills & values Changing skills base for Information Professionals Changing requirement for ‘validation’ & professionalism Changing model for the supply of information skills
  17. 17. Driving informed demand  We are working with employers to understand their current and future skills needs and expectations  We need to do more to help employers understand that Information Professionals are the solution to their problems  Looking ahead, we need to identify the future social, economic, legislative and technological trends that will drive demand (eg. Big Data)
  18. 18. The supply of information skills  We need to work in partnership with careers services, employers and training providers to attract, develop and retain top-quality talent in our profession  The majority of Information Professionals do not come through an academic route – need to support mid-career transition & in-post development  Working with LIS courses and learning providers to ensure curricula remain relevant to the needs of employers and the profession  Developing non-academic routes into the profession, including apprenticeships and vocational qualifications
  19. 19. The ‘supply chain’ for Information Professionals Rapid political, social, economic & technological change Changing behaviours & expectations for information users Changing demand for information skills & values Changing skills base for Information Professionals Changing requirement for ‘validation’ & professionalism Changing model for the supply of information skills Driving leadership at every level Championing equality, diversity & inclusion in our profession

  22. 22. Between 2021 and 2026, approx. 45% of our workforce will reach retirement age This is a huge opportunity to attract and develop new talent in our profession. An ageing workforce
  23. 23. The library & information workforce is 79% female and 21% male* But 47% of top earners are men We need to ensure that more brilliant women get and keep senior leadership roles A clear gender pay gap
  24. 24. 97% of the library and information workforce self-identify as white (Compared to 88% in the overall UK workforce) We need to open up our profession to new talent so we can better reflect the society we serve A lack of ethnic diversity in the profession

  27. 27. Toward a UK Information Skills Strategy  Bridging the UK Government Digital Strategy and Industrial Strategy to ensure that the Digital Economy is built on a strong foundation of skills and capacity  Three priority goals: 1. Leading knowledge-intensive industries – ensuring that Senior Executives have information skills in the same sense as HR, finance, governance & legal 2. Information Literacy for All – embedding information literacy and digital skills into the core educational curriculum 3. A thriving Information Profession – securing the long-term development of the Information Profession
  28. 28. We are the people our country needs in order to look ahead with confidence and seize the opportunities of social, economic and technological change
