Library 2.0 is running some free, online mini-conferences this year. The first one, Privacy in the Digital Age, has already passed but there are two more coming up – Library as Classroom on June 15, and Libraries of the Future on October 6. They’re free, just head over to their website to sign up.

This was doing the rounds on Twitter earlier on and warmed my heart a little: Who would be a librarian now? You know what, I’ll have a go


Book Riot’s “In Praise of Non-Degreed Librarians” is a great read for those of us who have worked in libraries without an MLIS. It begs the question: how does what we learn in class compare to what we learn on the job? And for those of you who are also struggling through the process of writing cover letters, check out opencoverletters.com if you haven’t already. Hired librarians post the cover letters that landed them the job and you can sort by type of institution (public, academic, school, etc.).
