I received this e-mail from Rachel the other day. If you are a librarian and consider yourself to be in an alternative career, please do consider helping her out. You could be part of what will certainly be another very cool book by Rachel Singer Gordon:
I’m working on a book on alternative careers for librarians, and am looking for input from folks who have pursued nontraditional paths. If you know anyone whose input would be great, please forward them this message or point them to the survey link below. Thanks so much!!
Please see the survey questions posted at The Liminal Librarian, and feel free to distribute widely.
I’m interested in hearing from a broad variety of people, including: those who have embarked on a new career after working for some time in libraries, those who earned an MLS but never worked in a traditional library setting, those who pursue alternative opportunities as a supplement to a traditional library career, those who work in a traditional setting but do nontraditional work, and those who do library work in nontraditional settings. Basically, if you think you might have/had some sort of nontraditional career, I’d love to hear from you!
