    Abstract

    Reference librarians as a group of professional staff are facing an uncertain future. The position of subject librarian in the 1960's & 1970's was designed to actively exploit and promote the library, its services and collections. This traditional knowledge-based role as the gatekeeper to library resources is under threat from many directions.
