Hi Cheryl, I agree that Guy's talk was fascinating and the discussion after his talk was great! I thought one of the most intriguing comments he made was that "Specialist Librarians" really considered themselves different from other librarians from the very start. The name of our Association has always been Special Libraries so it seemed to be it was more about the physical Library being special or specialized than about the librarians. But Guy's point was that the mission of Specialized librarians really is the development and promotion of the knowledge and learning in an organization and that is, especially now, in 2010, very different from a more traditional librarian role. Great stuff!
