This post has been a long time in the making. Several weeks ago, my fellow librarian and friend, Meg Ecclestone, wrote about maintaining subject expertise in LIS. This is a good topic to discuss in any profession, but it's especially so within academic librarianship since we're constantly interacting with researchers from so many different fields. Of course, how exactly a librarian should maintain subject expertise is not a new concern that's recently bubbled to the surface, so I won't speak too much about it, especially since Meg did a good job summarizing some tips on this issue.
