Infographic: Evolution of the Noble Librarian


The library has always been a storehouse of knowledge. The first stacks contained papyrus scrolls, which evolved to handwritten books, then printed books; today the volumes found in libraries are stored as printed material, electronic data, and multimedia presentations. Librarians have made a similar transition, from shelf managers to catalogue clerks to the professionals that today oversee the management of and access tools for many forms of media. There has been a single, consistent element for every librarian in every manifestation of the library. Knowledge is only passed on when it can be retrieved; librarians have always held the key.
