Personal Statement

Information is power. And information is everywhere, at our fingertips, surrounding us, always there. We canít get away from it. So why donít we feel powerful? Students, in fact, seem more powerless than ever. Information overload is real. To make it worse, students are confronted by two conflicting forces: the increasingly sophisticated, intuitive devices and apps that anticipate their needs and require less and less analysis, and the traditional academic platforms they are now asked to navigate, which do not anticipate their needs and require lots of analysis. Librarians need to step into this void and help shift information power back to students.
