Hey Chris, I think the idea that familiarity with current research might become more of an explicit requirement is interesting, though I’m not sure how likely it is. Mostly because it would require a fairly high degree of specialisation (I know I wouldn’t want to be the librarian trying to be familiar with current research about everything) meaning that libraries would either need to become far more specialised as well, or employ a lot more librarians – at least one for every area. Of course that’s taking the idea to its extreme, so it might still be fine if done to a lesser degree. Regardless, it’s interesting to consider.
