What are you doing after graduation?

Don King, a distinguished research professor, speaking at the National Summit on Library Human Resources held in October noted :
The need for professionals in libraries is not expected to be met by the supply of MLS (Master of Library Science) librarians, and significant shortages are expected in the future. Trends in use reveal increases in access to internal collections, external collections and web; whereas e-books, general reference and referral as well as reference tools are showing downward trends in use. Most librarians would choose a career in librarianship again, reflecting the high degree of satisfaction within this profession. (page 4)
For more information on library careers visit the Canadian Library Association or talk to an Alloway Librarian.
