Webinar: Intro to [Blank] Librarianship

June 4 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Webinar Description:

How much do you know about all the different fields of librarianship? If you’re looking to learn more about what your colleagues in these different fields do, are thinking about making a change in your career, or are just starting your career and need more information, then we invite you to hear from our panel of librarians!

We’ll be hearing from public, hospital, school, and academic librarians! Together we’ll talk about their experience applying for their job, what a “typical” day looks like, what prepared them most for their experiences, and more. 

If you have specific questions you’d like the panel to answer please email them to Rebecca Kluberdanz at rkluberdanz@clrc.org.
