the other side of librarian

Not many people who love to become a librarian, when you ask to many school age teenagers in indonesia about their profession in the future, none of them would answer librarian. Yes, librarian is not a popular profession in indonesia, and i think in some other countries as well. The reason is, librarian is not interesting profession that only dealing with books and archives. However, in some years ago, a library science degree in some universities are open for student who love to library and librarianship. And fortunately, I involve in it, so I know (not much) about librarianship and the problem that occur.

Every year, the IFLA (international federation library association) held global conference for all library and information professional around the world. The aims of this program is (of course) to enhance knowledge in the library and information science. Also, to see the latest information about the development of LIS, so everyone are invited to this event as long as they can obtain the fee by them self. The bad news is, not many LIS professional can go to the conference because of they lack of money (especially from the developing countries, that the government or company didn’t give financial support).

I think it’s good to join the conference, to see another side of the LIS development so we can tell a good story about the librarian profession to the youngsters. I think the conference will bring significant value to all participant who attend the meeting. Finally, I’m glad I become one of the participant who will attend the conference in sweden, and I will meet the new wave and image of librarianship. It is wonderful, to know that  IFLA supports the financial for some delegates to join the conference.

    Saya jadi teringat Almarhum Pak Sumarno.. Tiap memberi mata kuliah, beliau selalu menyelipkan motivasi pada anak didiknya untuk selalu merasa bangga pada jurusan dan profesinya sebagai pustakawan…

    Untuk Bu’ Nove… Kiranya langkah Pak Marno tersebut bisa jadi teladan bagi para dosen aktif saat ini. Mahasiswa perlu di-push terus kebanggaannya.

    Soal kesejahteraan para tenaga pustakawan pun seharusnya ada yang intens memperjuangkannya. Hingga jaminan berprofesi di masa depan bisa terjamin… 😀

    iya betul, perlu ditanamkan rasa cinta dan percaya diri pada para pustakawan bahwa mereka mampu untuk keluar dr mindset yang kebanyakan bersifat negatif…misalnya kayak om adi, meskipun seorang pustakawan tapi bisa melakukan hal-hal yang lebih dari itu…

    well done om adi 🙂
