Wow...exactly how much time do you have? There are so many ways this discussion could lead, but let me throw out one large topic. If you're in school now and pursuing your MLIS, concentrate your studies in as many courses as you can possibly fit in that give you some real grounding in technology. This is from a public library perspective - but I would think that academic libraries are moving in the same direction. Libraries have some strong and formidable competitors these days - besides the bookstores with their cozy coffee nooks, we've got Google, MySpace, you name it. Staff with technological know-how and creativity help libraries stay relevant.
