A brief description of the book that Rich Murray and I just edited, A Day in the Life: Career Options in Library and Information Science, has been posted on Amazon and on Libraries Unlimited's website. If you'd like to be notified when the book is available through Amazon, you can sign up for an email alert (of course, we'll let you know here, as well!).

The description reads:

"Many people, not just those new to the field, are curious about their career options. The editors of have assembled 95 authors, each of whom describes a "typical" workday or work routine, sharing their joys, sorrows, and annoyances in refreshingly candid fashion. In the process, those interested in finding a similar job will be treated to useful skills, and advice across a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional jobs; in addition to public, academic, school and special libraries, consortia, associations, LIS programs, vendors, publishing, consulting and other non-library fields are covered. For library and information science students, prospective information professionals, new librarians, or anyone considering a career change."
