In theory if not practice, traditional school library career planning went something like this: get a degree, find a job, work towards tenure, then remain in the same district until retirement. If that was ever actually the case, it certainly isn't any longer. School librarians have learned that making smart choices and planning strategically are the best ways to create a career that is both within their control and professionally fulfilling. This practical, hands-on book covers the multifaceted aspects of how school librarians can successfully carve out a unique niche within the educational community, showing readers how to

Present themselves to stakeholders, from the first interview through day-to-day job duties Learn the workings of the school and district while demonstrating expertise Develop the management skills needed to assume various leadership positions, both official and unofficial Stay current with developments in pedagogy and technology, and incorporate them into the fabric of the school Prepare for possible changes due to staff cuts or a personal decision

For both long-time school librarians, as well as those who have recently entered the profession with a background in education, Weisburg's guide will be an invaluable resource for navigating their career path.
