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.
