New Librarian, New Job: Practical Advice for Managing the Transition is designed to provide practical knowledge in all major areas of librarianship for new and existing professionals. In addition, it provides in-depth information on professional competencies and the processes for acquiring the essential job skills to perform effectively. This book fills the gap between theoretical textbook information and the true library profession through practical job and career advice for new graduates and professionals in academic and public libraries. Primarily geared towards recent graduates, this resource will also be relevant for professional librarians who are several years into their career and have recently joined a new position or institution. Contributors relate the experiences of practicing librarians and cover various areas of librarianship, such as instruction, career advancement, collection development, reference, and scholarly activity.

As in other recent works, this book strives to answer questions that new librarians might have as they enter the workforce....The book offers information of use to all librarians interested in learning their way around, whether in a first job, a new position within the same library, or in an entirely new type of library....All in all, New Librarian, New Job would be an excellent addition to any library's professional collection.

Grizzled veterans from the stacks, the reference desk, the cataloging station, and other fronts offer advice to graduate librarians who are about to step into their first job in academic or public libraries.
