Librarian's Job

The librarian’s job is to assist users in finding relevant information by proper guidance and / or by providing alternative means to do the same work in different way. Recently I came across one such resource which is titled as “Guide to Library Research at Cornell: Seven Steps to Effective Library Research developed at Cornell University Library which helps the users from deciding the research topic till it’s citations by way of tips, multimedia etc. It is really a great resource from library users point of view. At the same time, it is an innovative yet simple mechanism to serve the users. It may also serve as a tool for information literacy programme for library users.


  1. This article simply ROCKS ! That was a great read for me. keep it up with all the good work..

  2. Hello, I like your view about what's the librarian's job, reed the Guide proposed and I wonder how can we do it (the seven steps) in different way? I mean, it's a reality that nowadays our students-users need to find new ways to research easier and faster, using the "new" technologies and challenging the forms that google and the web have changed our brain.
