Title:Special Librarians Face the New Technology

Abstract:As I tried to define the role of the special librarian for these proceedings, I recalled an experience that happened during a recent visit to London. We were walking through the tunnel under Oxford Street to Hyde Park at Marble Arch. As we emerged into the daylight we heard a terrible din, and we saw a busker shuffling along the path with instruments hanging all over him. Cymbals were between his knees, a drum on his back, a harmonica on a wire frame on his chest, and more besides ! He was a one-man band. He was the whole show. The sweat was dripping off him, and he was doing his best under his heavy burden and the warm afternoon sun.
