Allright, 28 year old "eternal student" here. I'm gonna tell you a cautionary tale about trying to become a public librarian in a world where everyone seems to think they can "serg gud!".
you're screwed son.
Since libraries aren't sexy anymore, the courses are focussing on the business part of being an information broker. Expect a lot of talks about information audits, synergy, information sharing and a lot of mumbo jumbo about blogs, web 2.0. and other stuff. In general: make money from people who think that they can't "serg gud!".
You're basically told that everyone is a College Educated White male in his mid twenties who is a god with google, has all the time in the world to triple check his sources and simply doesn't need you anymore. One prof will probably tell you about the existence of the 'deep web', but will also pretty much tell you that only true professionals care about that.
You fellow students are nice and great to be around (if you ever see them, classes are schedulced once in a blue moon), but you will notice that in the end only 4 of them will be left. The rest have moved on to greener pastures (other media studies with more sexyness!). I started this study with 16 people, by the second year 8 were left. There's 2400 students coming in each year in the faculty, on average 15 choose this area of expertise, as a result you ALWAYS feel like you're the puppy to be kicked when budget cuts are announced.
The end of the stoy: you pay a lot of money and you are ill-prepared for library work.
I'm bitter, can you tell?
this signature is currently out of order, I will be punished for this.
