A Day in the Life: Career Options in Library and Information Science.
Libraries Unlimited, 2007
Many people, not just those new to the field
of Library and Information Science, are curious about their career
options. The editors of LIScareer.com have assembled 95 authors, each of
whom describes a "typical" workday or work routine, sharing joys,
sorrows, and annoyances in refreshingly candid fashion. In the process,
they offer those interested in finding a similar job exposure to useful
skills and advice across a wide variety of traditional and
nontraditional jobs. In addition to public, academic, school, and
special libraries, consortia, associations, LIS programs, vendors,
publishing, consulting, and other non-library fields are also covered.
This is a perfect guide for library and information science students,
prospective information professionals, new librarians-or anyone
considering a career change. (description reprinted from
