In relation to the changing face of libraries… what do you think about the deployment of robots in a library setting? As an aspiring library professional, this should be a wake up call. Is this how a library paraprofessional is looked upon? Though it is a step in the right direction that companies such as Fujitsu have recognized that libraries are an important part of the community, is this really the kind of help we have in mind? Do we want a more personal touch to the library service, or a more impersonal, clinical approach to the service. Perhaps library professionals need to consult with companies such as this one to devise technological solutions to other areas of the service. Areas in which the job of the library staff becomes easier, not extinct!
