Abstract: This paper attempts to present the current state of computer science penetration into librarianship in terms of both workplace and education issues. The shift from material libraries into digital libraries is mirrored in the corresponding shift from librarians into information scientists. New library data and metadata, as well as new automated library processes impose the need for a hybrid form of scientists, equipped with both the rich experience of traditional librarianship and the knowledge of modern techniques of information management based on information and communication technologies (ICT). In this context, the boundaries between computer scientists and information scientists are exercised in terms of research and vocational activities. The object of the computer scientist is hardware and software, which constitute the necessary background of the total information cycle, whereas the information scientist focuses on efficient ways of information organization, representation and management. The increasing job requirements of information scientists are taken into account in the formation of the upgraded educational curricula of Greek Library Science departments. An appendix of undergraduate and postgraduate curricula and career outcomes of some Library and Information Science departments is also given.
