Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This guide for new librarians offers practical, positive advice for entering the profession and starting off on the right foot, with a focus on academic libraries. The book is divided into four parts, beginning with the basics of applying for a job, creating resumes, and interviewing. Part 2 provides an overview of academic library departments' functions and the corresponding skills. Part 3 deals with professional development, taking into account promotion and tenure, service to the profession, and scholarship and discussing mentoring opportunities. Part 4 is probably the most down-to-earth section, talking about time management, library politics, and technology. The tone is upbeat, which should appeal to new librarians. Perhaps a bit more mention of negative situations and possible ageism (against youth) might be useful, but the overall approach is helpful. Lesley Farmer

Review

This guide for new librarians offers practical, positive advice for entering the profession and starting off on the right foot...The tone is upbeat, which should appeal to new librarians....helpful. (Booklist, 3/15/2007)

...well written....This work should be in any library school library. It is also suited for academic, public, special, and any library where a future librarian might frequent. (American Reference Books Annual, vol. 38 (2007))

...will be most helpful for new librarians...This book is recommended for both new librarians and those in information science programs. (Info Career Trends, May 2007)

This is a thoroughly useful resource....It is practical and informative, and most significantly, the writing is clear and engaging. It is highly recommended... (Catholic Library World, Vol. 77, No. 4 (June 2007))

As in other recent works, this book strives to answer questions that new librarians might have as they enter the workforce....The book offers information of use to all librarians interested in learning their way around, whether in a first job, a new position within the same library, or in an entirely new type of library....All in all, New Librarian, New Job would be an excellent addition to any library's professional collection. I can also recommend the book as a graduation gift or token of encouragement to a colleague considering a change in library employment. (Libraries and Graduate Students: Building Connections)

Grizzled veterans from the stacks, the reference desk, the cataloging station, and other fronts offer advice to graduate librarians who are about to step into their first job in academic or public libraries. They describe the various departments, discuss career advancement, and share survival skills. (Reference and Research Book News)
