Abstract: Quite a bit of literature over the last several years has served as a forum for discussion with regard to the changing role of librarians. These changes are occurring over revamped needs of library users from several different areas, such as: how data is gathered, interpreted and stored, how technology allows users to access surface layers of information, and how libraries play a different role in the physical manifestation of creating knowledge. These become considerations for the level of expertise or talent needed by library organizations of the future. This forum discusses how the impact of these evolving changes should create a need for developing a strategy for future hiring. These considerations come from a recent monograph by this author, Strategic Human Resource Planning for Academic Libraries, July 2015, Chandos Publishing, ISBN# 978-1-84334-764-4.
