New Skills for 2012

Here at WAL we usually speak of using “traditional” library and information science skills in new arenas. In today’s post, we’ll focus on skills that you might not have learned at library school — either because you had no room for tech-heavy electives or they simply weren’t offered.

While this may seem like the obligatory New Year’s Resolutions post, think of it as a post about generating new opportunities for yourself in the years to come. So in addition to signing up for that gym membership this January, give your brain a workout and familiarize yourself with these skills. Then stay tuned for more in-depth posts about many of these topics.

Please let us know in the comments about skills we may have missed.
