From the Chronicle for Higher Education:
The New Library Professional
By Stanley Wilder
If you work in an academic library and are under 35, you probably don’t have a lot in common with your older counterparts. You are far more likely to work in areas beyond the confines of traditional librarianship, often in information technology. You are less likely to hold a degree in library science. You are more diverse in ethnic and racial terms. And while those of you in nonsupervisory jobs generally earn less than your comparable older colleagues, some of you in high-tech jobs earn much more.
