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.

I'm a newly-hired reference librarian, winding up my MLIS coursework.  I'm really interested in hearing about how others' early employment experiences are going and what you're finding of value.

I am an MLIS student interested in medical librarianship.  I am interested to learn about others' experiences in their jobs, the job market, etc.

I'm bran new to librarianship. I'll be starting my MLIS program at San Jose State in Jan '12, and I'm currently exploring volunteer and internship possibilities in the SF Bay Area. I'm also a lawyer, and I hope to become a law librarian in an academic setting. Anyone in this group familiar with San Jose State's program?

Hello, world! I'm a soon-to-be graduate of SJSU's MLIS program, and I am very excited to get started in this career! I recently got hired as a library assistant at a career college, and I am finding out exactly what that means and how to serve this community.  Anyone else have any insights on career college librarianship?

there is need for the new and upcoming librarians to be equipped with IT skills, the challenge in the profession is becoming more tasking, especially at a time when everything is going virtual, librarianship not excluded. However, my experience so far in the past seven month in the e-library of Ondo State University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa, Ondo State, Nigeria has been rewarding. Although, the E-library was lifeless when i came; i met non-used workstations with two academic databases; a new and growing University though, but now, with the support from the school and library management, the databases and e-journal services have skyrocketed significantly. the first thing i put in place was to build the library website simple enough for user navigation, with different platforms for  the user community. Looks some how easy, yes; its because i have the skill. (web design and hosting, little knowledge in computer networking, host of other internet skills). most times, gaining the skill become gaining employment reduces your challenges and gives you an edge above others, even those you meet on the job...
