David Shumaker, professor at Catholic University of America’s School of Library and Information Science, has announced a new survey of federal government librarians on alternative and traditional career paths. Here are highlights of the announcement:
The Alternative and Traditional Careers for Librarians and Information Professionals Survey is now available!
We are seeking input from anyone working for a Federal government agency in any role, either as a contractor or a Federal employee, who has a background in library and information science. It is designed both for those in traditional library organizations and job classifications, and those in nontraditional career paths.
The survey has 20 questions and should take about 10 minutes to complete. By participating, and encouraging others to participate, you’ll be helping to show the variety of ways that librarians are contributing to our Federal Government, in both alternative career paths and traditional library services.
If you have questions about this research, please contact David Shumaker, Clinical Associate Professor, Catholic University of America, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-319-5551.
