As I sit at my computer it is currently 27° Fahrenheit, and there is ice falling from the heavens. Needless to say, I would love to be lying on a beach with my toes in the sand with a really good book. But instead I’ve got the second best thing: I’m cuddled on the couch with a fluffy blanket and a kitty on my lap. But while I’m wishing for a summer vacation I decided to peruse some summer reading lists online, and I couldn’t help but share this one. If any of you are feeling like me right now, why don’t you take a look at this reading list and see if something jumps out at you. Who says we need a beach and warm weather to enjoy a good book? 😉
For those who are considering getting their Masters in Library and Information Science I present you with US News’ 2013 rankings for the top LIS programs in the United States. While there are any number of reasons to choose what program to apply to, I feel it’s always good to know where your program lies in comparison to the rest.
I found a blog written a couple of years ago that goes rather in-depth about the different jobs available to those with their Masters in Library and Information Sciences. Some of them are pretty interesting, and a few might not be what you expect. If you’re considering a LIS degree but aren’t sure if you will have any luck finding a career after graduation this blog will give you a pretty good idea of the different things you can do.
Some of you already know that the ALA has a job posting board, but I wanted to go ahead and post it here just in case you didn’t know. It’s pretty comprehensive, and you can search by city, state or keyword. I would definitely recommend checking this site out.
