(education) Education directions for new information professionals  
From the Australian Library Journal, an article by Sue Myburgh of the Centre for Internet Studies at the University of South Australia, discussing the knowledge, skills and attributes required by information professionals in the 00s. This is worth a read - it was originally presented at the 11th Information Online Conference and Exhibition of ALIA (the Australian Library and Information Association) and I saw Sue's presentation. I was impressed with what she had to say (and it removed a lot of the worries and doubts I had about entering professional library studies).
