Grow Forward: Professional Education Needs in the 21st Century Program Las Vegas Convention Center
S219
Description :

Twenty-first century libraries, archives, and museums (LAMs) face tremendous changes in how they select, acquire, preserve and provide access to content, especially born digital materials. Websites and social media, content management systems and online exhibits, digital preservation and forensics: all these must-have features are accelerating the pace of change. LAM professionals need to acquire twenty-first century skill-sets to respond to these changes, yet many of our newest graduates report that they cannot find jobs, in some cases because they lack traditional skills. In this session, we will look at educational expectations and opportunities for new and seasoned professionals, including certification, credentialing, badging, and portfolios and how professionals and employers can be confident that a resume accurately reflects real-world skills. We will review the ways that traditional GLAM education is adapting to new demands and discuss additional areas in which improvement is needed.
