We hope you enjoyed our comic about the mission of librarians in the 21st century! We’re a group of new Syracuse University iSchool graduate students of library and information science, and we created this little gem for your viewing pleasure. We’ve read the Mission section of The Atlas of New Librarianship and it has inspired debate and some corny comic-making.
Join us in our discussion right here in the “Mission” Thread. This week we’ll dive further into R. David Lankes’s idea of a mission.
Do you agree librarians should have a mission? Should they work to improve society by facilitating knowledge creation in their communities? Does this sound crazy to you? Does every librarian need to have the same mission? Do we need a mission at all? Tell us what you think!
