Reference Librarians; Roles

Publication Date



Librarians have taken on new and evolving roles, many of which have come about based on a need that can be uniquely satisfied with a librarian's background and expertise. Some roles have simply been filled due to a librarian's availability and willingness to volunteer for something new. In considering how these roles will continue to evolve and affect our daily work, we've identified and categorized the changing roles and responsibilities of Himmelfarb health science librarians.
