April: Technical Services Librarians matter at your library: Finding a Career in Technical Services

ALCTS webinar
Date: April 17, 2013
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.

Step behind the scenes to learn about the exciting variety of rewarding careers available in technical services librarianship. Our panel of experienced technical services librarians from a variety of positions and institutions will be the tour guides to the world of technical services. This isn’t your grandmother’s technical services department.

Often on the edge of developing technology and the implementation of it on a local level, technically able technical services librarians are necessary in the growth and development of the future of libraries. Panelists will speak about their daily work, what led them to decide on a career as a technical services librarian, and recommendations for those interested in pursuing a similar career path.
Brought to you by the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services New Member Interest Group (ALCTS NMIG), this free webinar has been developed with all in mind from the aspiring library/information school graduate student to the experienced library professional looking to undertake new responsibilities or for a career change. Please join us on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at 2:00 P.M. EST for Technical Services Librarians Matter at Your Library: Finding a Career in Technical Services.
