Abstract:

For library students, paraprofessionals, and librarians who are wondering if they have their ladder against the right wall, Straight from the Stacks fills the need for an up-to-date resource that uncovers the amazing and varied jobs available in the library field. Encompassing both traditional and nontraditional career paths in libraries, this comprehensive and engaging guide makes it easy to get a grip on these and other information science career path questions and see the possibilities! Covering a wide range of Library Information Science professions, Straight from the Stacks offers insiders' perspectives along with plenty of reassurance that career opportunities do exist. Organized by type of institution including public, school, academic, nontraditional, medical/law, and library administration, this useful overview covers the many areas of librarianship and typical jobs in each environment. Firsthand accounts from real-life librarians in a variety of information science disciplines make this career guide come alive, and fifteen sample job descriptions for different niches of information services offer a reality check for those committed to understanding an ever-changing array of possibilities. Tracing career paths, everyday.
