Rethinking Information Work : Career Guide for Librarians and Other Information Professionals
About this item
As traditional librarianship changes, librarians have opportunities for new career paths, the author argues. She surveys the library and information science landscape, then discusses career self-awareness as a way to determine choices; traditional paths, such as public, school, and academic libraries; nontraditional paths like data management, digital archives, digital asset management, genealogy research, content curation, and maker spaces; independent work; understanding, describing, and documenting transferable skills and translating them into non-library and information science opportunities; making the most of change; building professional equity; creating a career map; and improvising a resilient career.
