I take pride in my chosen profession - Ich ben ein librarian. It took me a few years post-bachelors to commit to the field and I don't regret it. Currently I do not work in a library. I see the inside of my institution's library barely more than once a month. However, much of my work is still very much in line with what I want to do, and if I were just in a library, it would easily be considered 'library work.'
My point is this - analyzing the organization of information and organizing information in a way that fosters the transfer of information and knowledge (including studying how people work and teaching people to optimize their work to enable better knowledge transfer) should not be unique to the confines of a library. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it should be an essential, integral part of a lot of work -including IT. Today, IT isn't about the limitations of systems, it's about developing systems to meet the user needs (not the other way around). And that is the work of a librarian. Designing systems to maximize the efficiencies of how people instinctively organize information married to the enhancements of the processing capacity of technologies and the dramatically extended reach of networks should involve people who understand those patterns as well as the people who understand the capacity of technology.
I suppose this point is in line with many earlier posts about the need for librarians to reach outside the walls of libraries to work with other groups, particularly information technology. I guess I am now looking at it after stepping out of the confines of those walls.
