Abstract:

Librarians have struggled hard to be recognised as a profession in Spain, despite LIS being a five-year degree, but progress is now being made thanks to the introduction of embedded librarianship in some universities. Using the skills they already have but applying them in a different environment is adding value and making librarians irreplaceable.

Librarians have struggled hard to be recognised as a profession in Spain, despite LIS being a five-year degree, but progress is now being made thanks to the introduction of embedded librarianship in some universities. Using the skills they already have but applying them in a different environment is adding value and making librarians irreplaceable.

What's Inside:

Despite all the work done on library advocacy, it seems that there   has been no impact at all on society in Spain, and librarians still   struggle to get recognition from other professionals. However, a new   service has been developed which is related to the embedded librarian   concept but focused on research assessment, research information and   data management. This new role involves working with researchers in   their offices managing their output, assessing dissemination strategies   and monitoring the impact of their production through bibliometric   indicators.
