Infographic: Industry Outlook on Library and Information Science

University of South California has created this infographic to promote their Master of Management. It shows some interesting figures that can help us describe the professional profiles that will be recquired in our libraries in the next decade.

It also shows how “job growth is expected to slow over the next decade”, while the patron’s technological skills rises: “35% of Americans says they are very likely to use library materials accessible via smartphones or apps” or a comparison of salaries depending on your position in libraries; those involving technological skills are way better paid, to the point that a database administrator earns more than a library director.

Please, tell us what you think about it!
