Yeah: high-tech information sleuths

"Forget about that image of librarians as a mousy bookworms. More and more of today's librarians must be clever interrogators, helping the patron to reframe their question more usefully. Librarians then become high-tech information sleuths, helping patrons plumb the oceans of information available in books and digital records, often starting with a clever Google search but frequently going well beyond" ("Best Careers 2009: Librarian", US News, 11. Dezember 2008. Hinweis aus nexgenlib).
