Skills for the 21st Century Librarian

Hey all! I'm looking to collect some feedback from people in the library student community regarding the status of education in our professional programs. What areas of coursework do you feel are being served best and worst in your institutions? What skills do you feel you're equipped with, and what do you feel needs to be augmented?

This post over on Information Wants to Be Free has been around since mid-July, but it, and its comments, are important reading for library students now and in the future: Skills for the 21st Century Librarian. Here's a supplemental post she put up after the comments poured in: Further Thoughts. And here's a related post on Goblin in the Library: Teaching New Tricks.

Just looking to spur some discussion...what do you students think?

P.S. - I'm also posting this on the Library Student Community Forum.
