For some years now, there has been talk about teleworking, the digitization of jobs, the emergence of virtual education and the impact of new technologies on daily work. Each change was announced with expectation, but its implementation in practice was slow and many times it did not have the acceptance and support of organizations and people; many times they were seen with distrust, not very useful and above all, it generated a feeling of losing closeness and human control over jobs, schedules and relationships. But in 2020 everything has changed, causing those expectations and distrust in the implementation of technologies in daily work to have had to adapt to the need to continue working, not to interrupt productivity, but, above all, due to the most elemental of human instincts: survival.

How will it impact libraries?

In this new labor market that is approaching, the maximum premise will be learning by doing, for this the library staff must specialize in marketing, data analysis and customer service, otherwise this digital transformation that began this 2020 as a great race to implement services quickly, and that at a certain point users were tolerant of delays or lack of services, in a very short time they will no longer be.

Libraries must transform, adapt and face highly changing scenarios and have a general, technical and specialized approach, otherwise librarians and libraries will not be able to overcome this situation.
