Guide to the world of library and information. Identifies a broad range of Library and Information Science career options. Identifies professional skills and strengths needed. Helps LIS students and practitioners perform a self-assessment to determine their "best fit" job preferences.
Librarianship is a great career. This book is for anyone who is attracted to becoming a librarian and who wants to know more about the profession: what librarians do, what librarians are all about, the different types of professional jobs there are in libraries, and how to get started.
Describes a typical workday or work routine, sharing joys, sorrows, and annoyances in refreshingly candid fashion. In addition to public, academic, school, and special libraries, consortia, associations, LIS programs, vendors, publishing, consulting, and other non-library fields are also covered.
Includes a lot of different kinds of librarians. Good videos. Further reading – articles and websites. Also has a section on similar careers which isn’t very helpful. Some of them are similar. Some a bit inexplicable. Funeral director?
Also on this page, on the left side of the screen is a list of different kinds of librarians. Each type of library job includes an overview of the kinds of tasks performed by that librarian and a link to the ALA division devoted to that area. Some also include information such as education requirements.
