Division B WG Information Professionals

Description

The IAU Commission B Working Group exists to foster communication and understanding between research astronomers and the librarians and other information professionals who support them. Librarians have long been an essential resource to astronomers, helping to track down hard-to-find resources, maintaining access to bibliographic databases, and managing the complex finances associated with journal and book collections. The roles of the library and librarian are changing as information becomes increasingly digital in format and increasingly available on the Internet, but the librarian is no less essential than before. We aim to foster a strong partnership between astronomers and librarians so that together common goals can be attained.
