Title:Technology and the Academic Library Staff
Author(s):Gray, Carolyn M.
Subject(s):Libraries --Data processing

Library education
Abstract:This clinic program announces that I intend to address the human factors involved in library automation in academic libraries. It is tempting to begin this talk by discussing the impact of technology upon academic library staff with a lead into the competencies that idea assumes. If I began in that way, I might begin with certain assumptions. Some of the assumptions held by many attending this conference might include: 1. that the application of technology in libraries will result in benefits to staff and users; 2. that technology is the inevitable wave of the future; and 3. that as librarians, if we do not embrace technology, we will be left to fade into oblivion in our museums full of books.
