What would be the duties of Next Generation Librarians?
Definitely it would include the following:
--Distribution of content via digital tools such as blogs and wikis
for the library system website.
--Develop and deliver library instruction through podcasts and
--Promote community via new technologies within the library and
virtually via IM and other emerging communication mechanisms.
--Enhance Library's web presence with current content and methods for
distribution such as RSS.
--Investigate and implement new technologies that may enhance the
Library System's web presence.

I can add some more to above:
--Establishing and maintaining Open Access Institutional Repositories.
--Facilitating Open Access Publishing.
