This essay will discuss the changing roles and work done by technical services professionals and the ways in which they can develop the skills needed for these new roles and opportunities. While catalogers needed to have an in depth knowledge of AACR2 and MARC in order to independently catalog physical materials, metadata librarians need to be familiar with a much wider range of metadata standards, work with digital objects, and work cooperatively on project teams that design digital library projects. How will these roles continue to change as further opportunities arise?
