What is a Professional Librarian?

As always David Rothman has discovered some interesting pieces about the “professional librarian,” whether the term professional is an oxymoron (as stated by Ryan Deschamps) and “The Library Paraprofessional Movement and the Deprofessionalization of Librarianship,” by Rory Litwin

David looks at both arguments and provides is thoughts and insight to both Deschamps and Litwin.  Make sure you read the comments (and not just because I commented) because others have decided to chime in and offer their thoughts which extends the discussion even further.  To add your .02 cents go over to David’s blog and post a comment.
