Most of you will have seen the Chicago Tribune article that has been making the rounds: Google can't compete with a skilled librarian steeped in information technology.
Assuming you have already read and discussed the piece, I will not re-iterate the thesis here except to quote the person being interviewed as to his general views on librarianship:
"I think of my job as very much going to the root of librarianship, which is facilitating learning," said Jacobsen, 38, who earned a Masters of Library and Information Science from Dominican University in 2008. "We are facilitating learning and creating community. The main difference is that I (and my library) are moving well beyond just books, as are many other libraries."
