Great reflection Sarah ūüôā

I liked your point that librarians need different skills depending on the discipline they support. Librarians are constantly updating their skills to keep up with changes in the research landscape. However, you imply that while librarians make an effort to gain new skills, academics do not. I was interested in your comment that perhaps instead of librarians, researchers need to be reskilled. Do you think that  it is the role of the librarian to help researchers to gain new skills, or should academics take more responsibility for learning new technologies?
