An illustrative example is provided by the head librarian in the 1992 movie The Gun in Betty Lou’s Handbag who believes that the goal of every library book is to be returned to the shelf unmutilated (The Gun in Betty Lou’s Handbag, 2003). While the stereotype is, of course, overblown, there is a grain of truth in the traditional role of the reference librarian. Far from being happy when all books are back on the shelves in their proper order, most librarians are happier when the collections are being used.

In the not-sodistant past, reference librarians were called on to know their collections and, in many cases, look up relevant information for library users. As information shifted from print to electronic formats, librarians became the gatekeepers – the experts who knew the most efficient techniques for doing pay-per-search research on systems like Dialog. Information seekers needed to go through librarians to get the information (Goetsch, 2008: 158). As information becomes increasingly electronic, networked and ubiquitous, the role of the reference and instruction librarian is shifting from being gatekeeper to guide.
