Studies have shown that reading habits have shifted from the traditional paperback reading to reading on digital media. with that the role of the librarians have also gone through a sea of change.
Where earlier librarians were only seen as custodians of the physical books, now they are also in charge of creating digital versions of the paperbacks under their custody and are responsible for their upkeep as well.
Even though most of the younger generation have successfully taken to digital reading,. there are still those who prefer the comfort and warmth of a paperback.
Which is why a librarian is responsible for catering to the need of both the types of readers as well as educated and help those enthusiastic about reading digitally on how to go about he whole business.
