So you want to become a librarian?

Next month myself and a few other very awesome librarians from the Portland Rad [so rad, on so many levels] Ref Collective will be taking part in the ‘So You Want to become a Librarian’ panel hosted by the Independent Publishing Resource Center. We will discuss the librarian’s journey, beginning with our own stories as once innocent, starry-eyed Lib Sci students thrust into the sobering world of unemployment, particularly in Portland, and how we learned to cope and eventually emerge triumphant. So don’t worry! I promise the panel will have a happy ending.

Blurb + Deets:
Wed Feb 4, 7pm
How To Become A Librarian (at IPRC)
Cost: Free

Do you love getting lost in a maze of book stacks? Are you passionate about community outreach, intellectual freedom, and the dissemination of information? Do you meticulously organize your personal library and what’s more – enjoy it? If so, you may want to consider the field of library science! Join four local librarians as they discuss librarianship in every shape and form – from what it means to be a librarian in the new millennium [and in Portland] to choosing the right school and landing employment afterwards. Q&A session to follow – all are welcome!
