Bill LeFurgy has written an interesting article that has now been published in the Library of Congress' The Signal - Digital Preservation.
He writes, "Archives, libraries and other collecting organizations are in the midst of a staff revolution. The digital age is driving a demand for employees who are comfortable and creative with technology. As someone who hires and supervises staff in a digitally-oriented environment I know this first hand."
He describes the job skills needed today, including the ability to write concise descriptions for social media sites, and also that "Archivists and librarians need to clearly explain what they do and why they do it."
