Users perceive academic librarians as playing a role in issues of acquisition, description, curation, preservation of print and digital materials. But I think increasingly, beyond those functions, we're also seeing some very challenging roles in the library. There are a lot of growing areas in the library. We are applying digital transformation by using digital tools, such as AI, IoT and data technologies to produce scholarship and services in new ways.
In the transition of moving from an analogue world to a digital world, my engineering and librarianship background helps to act as a kind of bridge between librarians and scholars in the university to provide vision, leadership, direction, and expertise in the planning, organization, design, and maintenance of our “Digital Library”.
