Rich Murray signs on as co-editor of A Day in the Life

I'm pleased to tell you that Rich Murray has agreed to co-edit the book A Day in the Life. Rich has been assistant editor of LIScareer.com for several years. We've received most of the final drafts and anticipate that the book will be published in 2007.

This book attempts to provide a glimpse into a wide variety of jobs available to information professionals. In this book, 95 authors describe a “typical” work day or work routines, point out advantages and disadvantages in their position, and offer advice to job seekers interested in following their career path. Authors candidly share their experiences to offer readers a sense of what it’s really like to work in their type of job.

The book covers a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional jobs. In addition to public, academic, school and special libraries, it also describes some jobs in consortia, associations, LIS programs, vendors, publishing, consulting and other non-library fields. Though the book is primarily aimed at information professionals working in the US, it features authors from around the world.
