Library Career Management in the Digital Age, A New Tool for Development presents a new model, the Librarian Career Management Tool, that can be used to identify and structure possible opportunities and challenges to the career development of academic librarians in the digital age. Because of this heterogeneity in the field, there is a need for a theoretical and practical tool that distils variation down to fundamental principles which people can then work with. The tool discussed in the book collates all possible career paths into a taxonomy of influencing factors and natural relationships between these factors for the digital librarian context.

The advantage of modeling these distinct patterns is to enable informed and far-sighted decisions on the motivations for the next steps in an individual’s career. In addition, it enables key trends in digital information management to be better understood.
