Libraries are going through a metamorphosis currently.
As more and more technology come on board, libraries are becoming tech hubs and resources for more hands on interaction and learning. Services such as Google, took away a lot of the research benefits libraries used to provide, but today libraries are starting to adapt to the information age, providing ebook loans, hosting training classes for new technologies such as 3d printing, and more.
As such, a degree in Library and Information Science is becoming more and more important as new skills are needed in managing the increasingly large amount of data and computer systems libraries require in order to support these new needs from the communities they serve. Despite common belief, running a library these days is a lot more work than just shelving books.
