I'm a first-year student at the University of Toronto's iSchool (Masters of Information in the Library & Information Science stream, 2-year program) in Canada. Looking forward to hearing the experience of new librarians, experienced librarians, and other students, and discussing the issues around the Library 2.0 concept and the future of libraries.

Greetings.  Just graduated with my MLIS.  I am looking forward to discussions with fellow new librarians. I am mostly focused on art librarianship; is anyone else out there in the forum an art librarian?

Good Morning all,


I am a corporate information officer (combining library management with research skills). I still feel pretty "new" to the career as I don't have a background in Library skills (no related degree or prfessional qualifications I am afriad), but I love the work I do and am surprised everyday at how much there is to learn.


I am looking forward to hearing other experiences and learning more about staying up to date!

Hello everyone!

I'm currently halfway through my MLIS program and applying to entry-level jobs in the library field. I look forward to hearing about all of your experiences as new librarians and hope to be joining you soon!

Respected Colleague

I am doing research on "Security & Risk Management
Policies for Libraries to Prevent Cyber Threats”. As I am a librarian in police
library, it’s my first duty to secure information in library. It is a wakeup
call for librarian, because libraries are soft target for hacking.

The main objective of the research is to gather information
about cyber security for library services.

I will be very thankful to you, if you are ready to help and
fill the questionnaire, please mail me faridbazmi@rediffmail.com;
faridbazmi@hotmail.com; I will sent a questionnaire for your valuable comments.

With kind regards.
