  23. 23. But first...some sage advice about career choices...
  24. 24. We’re living in the early days of a revolution in the ways in which people use information and technology in their daily lives. In the next 20-30 years, every person, every organisation and business will need access to library & information skills and professional values to succeed.

  27. 27. We’re living through an era of great change. As a society, many of our political and economic certainties have been disrupted. This disruption is ongoing. The reason why it feels like we’re not on solid ground is because the change is still underway. What worked 10 years ago isn’t going to work today. Use Time Formats, contexts and behaviours change, professional ethics, values, core purpose & mission don’t “...we are still in a long transitional phase between these two eras [‘print-based industrial society’ to ‘ technology-based internet society’], and that so- called ‘information overload’ is one of the many unfortunate but temporary consequences of being in this interim state of flux.” - Susskind and Susskind (2016)
