Comparisons of Information Technology Education in MLIS Programs. Abstract Given the increasing importance of technology in library and information science (LIS), new graduates' proficiency with technology is likely an important factor affecting their ability to find satisfactory work. This article investigates technology skills required by library jobs and compares them to LIS educational standards and practices. A review of LIS curricula reveals that several programs require little or no technological skill. Nothing in the accreditation process seems likely to change this situation, despite prevalent commentary that change is required. The literature on technological competency required by job openings is then reviewed, which results in recommendations that students tailor their educational experiences to their specific career goals and focus on adaptability and LIS fundamentals to increase the likelihood of a successful job search.

Introduction Curriculum Standards The ALA can affect LIS education in ways other than accreditation standards, however.

Job Opportunities - About us - British Council - India. About. I started this blog when I was a frustrated job-hunting librarian.


One of my favorite job-hunting resources is Alison Green’s Ask A Manager blog. She gives great advice, not just because she’s a smart lady with a lot of common sense, but because she has worked as a hiring manager and is able to provide insight into the great mystery of how they think. Inspired by her work, I wanted to create a venue which allowed people who make hiring decisions to explain their enigmatic thinking.

I think we need more opportunities where people on both sides of the hiring process can communicate without fear or pressure. To this end, I created a survey instrument which could be completed anonymously (or not), and solicited help from anyone who might hire a librarian, in all library types, as well as in non-library organizations that hire information professionals.
