Do it yourself: librarians weigh in

Weighing in on the debate on whether social networking in the CCSU library should be open to students to assist in creating and coming up with new ideas.

Steven Bernstein brings up the idea that doctors and lawyers don’t get outside opinion or social critiquing. Librarians perhaps aren’t considered a trade with special training. I think Steve brings this up and articulates the need to have order and clarity which is provided by the skilled librarian not the average social networking student.

On the other hand, Edward Iglesias says there’s nothing to fear. Technologies change and with it come different levels of expertise.

I think a combination of the two, a platform where students can interact with skilled librarians, each learning from one another, with the climbing expectation of advancing.
