Abstract

The factors like demography, economy and technology have greatly influenced the educational landscape. Librarianship is also impacted deeply with the new market trends such as open source concepts, social media, and digitization and knowledge management initiatives. The purpose of this review was to understand how new or recast job roles have changed visible work activities, tasks and responsibilities. Studies have shown that Medical and Health Sciences programs have begun to take initiatives in order to introduce health information literacy skills into the curriculum; therefore, the role of librarians has moved from beyond routine orientation sessions to curriculum-integrated literacy sessions throughout the academic year. Search for Literature was done in LISTA, Academic Search Complete, Medline, Emerald and Scopus. After systematic review of literature, it was concluded that the profession continue to emerge as the practices changed to satisfy the requirements of our clientele.
