As librarians are required to understand the shifting of resources and do Knowledge Mobilization, understanding the information industry and suudah should be followed by awareness and change of the librarian’s perspective.

Faizuddin Harliansyah highlighted the 7 pillars of information literacy published by the Society of College of National and University Libraries (SCONUL) in 1999, later developed into a standard information literacy competency by the 2000 Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), a competency standard that must be owned by Librarians in conducting information literacy.

Hery Purbobasuki convey that the fernomena of the development of science today is faster both the variety of contents and media, so that the demands of the more diverse users, information not like the warehouse but instantly just in time explode like the market. It is a challenge for librarians that ownership of information is no longer important but very important information access. Librarians should synergize with lecturers in research and academic development, exemplified by Scopus indexed journals. The librarian is no longer a bookkeeper but as a science guard.

Librarians as part of the Scholarly and Scientific Lifecycle should be able to blend and “feel” equal to the relevant professions so as not to form the image as a special group of sterile. In addition, the cultivator must have the ability as a supporter of the scientific and scientific cycles, must be able to be a culprit, able to research and write scientific, able to write in layman’s language in print / electronic media and finally able to recognize the direction of scientific development (science mapping).
