The shift: Library science -> Information Science only tells part of the story. Science is an inadequate model, as is information.
The dominant paradigm: Information -> Knowledge is incomplete.
Librarians must be attentive to meaning, not just information/knowledge.
Epistemology -> Semiotics but ultimately the core of librarianship is experience design.
Aesthetics then, becomes a core concern and the librarian’s new pedagogical model should be design school, specifically social design. 
 A case could be made for curatorial studies, and although insights from the field would surely aid librarianship, it lacks some fundamental skill sets of design.
My project “is the new” has had many lives. It first appeared here. Later, it was reworked here. That, in turn led to its appearance in the Boston Globe here. It sat dormant for a while but has been reworked yet again, this time by David McCandless and it now appears as “X is the new black” in his book The Visual Miscellaneum.
