Promoting Professionalism and Academic Librarianship: Observations on the Marketing of the M.L.S.
Despite the requirement for librarians to hold an MLS or equivalent, many libraries have not sought opportunities to publicize their credentials.

A brief survey of academic library websites reveals that few are using the web to publicize librarian credentials, and as a result, are missing opportunities to promote their expertise and advanced qualifications to their community.
